What a glorious weekend, Happy St Patrick's Day to one and all.

It's gardening time now, time to be digging and raking and weeding. Planting seeds in trays ready to plant out in a few weeks time. Cutting grass too, where once we cut grass up until the end of September, now it seems to go on almost all year round, when it's dry enough.....

I went off a couple of weeks ago and got a trailor load of dung from a local stud farm to dig into all my vegetable plots to give them some growing goodness, but, unfortunately, it is too fresh to use so I have to wait until it rots down and that probably means next year. So what will my poor veggies do this year? I shall have to look for some rotted stuff, somewhere.

I am going to plant, leeks, courgettes, peas, beans, onions, swiss chard, lettuce, radishes, cucumbers, peppers and maybe squash. We have tried a few things over the years and have had to rule out certain plants that either don't grow very well for us or that we end up not eating or we don't have room for in the garden.

Can't wait til' we have our own veggies for meals again, tho' we still have a few leeks left in the garden and the onions only ran out a couple of weeks ago, so that isn't too bad.
