Yum!

I've been up this morning, digging. July isn't the optimum time to be digging, really, lol I came home hot and knackered, and scoffed the potatoes I'd boiled ready for tea (spanish omelette, or rather it was going to be...) and three millie's cookies. Three! oops.

There's a patch right in front of mine (belonging to same lady) where someone else was gardening and they've just abandoned it. There are onions and things growing there, and I was eyeing them today... I shall dig them up. Waste not want not.

Back later to dig some more. Want to get the broccoli and fennel in this week if at all poss!

Ok broccoli and fennel seeds sowed direct into the ground on Tuesday evening... today I was trying to erect a netting arrangement over it all so on the offchance they do decide to grow the birds won't get em. Blooming hell it took ages and the structure does look decidedly precarious!!! It screams AMATEUR lol.

*grin*

Aaaaand pak choi and lettuce in as well after breaking up the earth with a hammer (lol) and another equally unprofessional and somewhat comic looking cage constructed. whoo! lol brother came to see it today and is deciding what to put in the last bit.

Rainbow chard in last bit, planted today

It was very exciting today... not been up all week as it's rained enough, and when I went there today, there were little seedlings on show! And teeny potato plants!

What is more, I said hello and chatted to the gentleman in the next plot who was digging up his spuds, and he gave us some for our tea. Mmmm.
