I’ve been back in the garden this weekend feeling very excited because the seeds I planted a few weeks back have finally started to sprout! With the near-hurricane level winds we’ve been enjoying lately, a lot of the seeds ended up in different pots and now I’ve got roquette growing with the peas and daisies and blue pimpernels popping up beside the marion berry bush. Ah, well. I can always sort the little tackers out when they grow up a bit.
I’ve given the whole patch a good fertilize and cut off all the withering bits and used them as compost.
Most exciting of all though, are my strawberries. This afternoon I ripped out a whole lot of dead beans and divided up a few more strawberry plants to pot in their place. I’m now up to 15 strawberry plants altogether in anticipation of the Summer of the Berry, when I’m hoping to have so many berries I’ll have to make jams just to use them all.
