I’m really keen to get going on the plot now, but the weather seems to have other ideas. It’s either freezing cold, or too wet, or anything else I can use as an excuse to stay at home and fill out some pages of my journal instead!
So the plot has been somewhat planned out. The space on paper never quite seems to correspond with the actual plot space, so no doubt my measurements are out somewhere and the plans will end up changing along the way. Or I just change my mind at planting time. It’s a gardener’s prerogative!
I have managed at least one day (okay, maybe half a day) on the plot to dig over the brassica bed, spread a couple of bags of compost and plant out a bed of shallots. I’m sure it won’t be long before full action gets under way.
I also have a windowsill full of seedlings, so I’m not doing too badly.
And a to-do-list for March has been inked and illustrated, so I’m pretty committed to it. Not sure I’ll be ticking them off or scribbling out those I fail to do, in my usual style.
It’s a start at least no?
Come on spring!
