...it is nearly time for me to start growing things again. I can't believe it, it felt like this day would never come. My third growing season. The evenings are getting lighter by a minute or so every day, and it notices. I went to the garden centre and bought my onion sets, second early spuds and main crop spuds(this will be my first year with these) on Wednesday. I also bought one of those crappy plastic frame greenhouse things, it's all we have the money and room for, but it means I can start things off earlier this year. I also have a big bag of manure waiting to be dug in, but that will have to wait until next week as I'm busy all weekend. I can vividly remember Pete and I sitting out there digging out that first little square foot of earth, little did I know how addictive it would be.
I sat at the table last night and did my garden plan. This year we are growing lettuce, rocket, spring onions, white & red onions, leeks, carrots, french beans, sweetcorn, swedes, parsnips, potatoes and tomatoes. There are only a few additions on last year, mainly carrots, swedes and red onions. I hope it's another good year, with a bit more sunshine.
