Di notte ancora 1 o 2 gradi – vento freddo, 10-11˚al sole – la terra é ancora motlo fredda e zuppa

In vasi vari e messi in casetta giardino: tuberi di dalia che non hanno fiorito l’anno scorso
Trapiantato un mirtillo
Messa spiraea in vaso grande – sperém…
Spostata la Dicentra – ora e’ nel vaso blu grande – provare a propagare l’anno prossimo
What happened to my gardening journal? As I suspected… have been doing enough work in the garden, and then was too tired to write about it. Not true.
I just cannot keep a proper journal, and this is also true for plant labels: wether I use them or not I always end up not knowing what is what…
So much happened in the garden:
less griselinia: before, during and after….
Much more light, and it had become useless as a windbreak, thanks Meitheal! (the pictures were taken in July – we had the best summer ever!)
After three meagre summers – vegetable wise – things are good!
5 beech saplings and 5 Rowan
Beetroot, broad beans and lettuces in bed 4
Cloudy and drizzly – then sunny from around 1 pm!
Cerinthe – in modules
Mangetout – Carouby de Maussane – very old seeds – the expiry date was about 6 years ago – some in modules, some in tunnel border, some outside
Dwarf French beans “the prince” – modules
Climbing french beans “Eva” – modules
Zucchine: Romanesco, zucchini (???) , soleil
Beetroot Chioggia : one module tray and one row in tunnel border
Radishes – 2 rows between strawberry plants
Planted the strawberries from last years runners – some in soil some in pots.
Have to fix south side of PT – last week storm must have lifted the whole thing!
Transplanted tomato seedlings – the chillies did not germinate at all – may try another sowing now that it is warmer.
The tulips look amazing.
