Garden

6th April

Planted potatoes (at last) – no dig: compost, cardboard, grass clippings, covered with landscaping fabric until they come out.

Where:

Pink Fie Apple and Juliette along the raspberry bed

Nicola and Sharpe between blueberry and quince – plan to plant more fruit bushes there next year.

Planted onion sets – late but will see, weather is still very cold.

12 April 2013

Planted more spuds: Maris peer in future herb bed.

Potted one blueberry, planted cranberries in the corner of herb bed

Planted blueberry next to chicken run

The tomatoes look dreadful – it took one month to germinate and they are growing really slowly.

Scattered saved calendula and california poppy seeds along SW side of chicken run

And the gift of the day….

Fritillaria

I planted the bulbs 4 years ago – this is the first year that they seem finally established – hopefully they’ll spread.
