As we pass the magical moment of the spring equinox which just so happens to be same day as daylight saving, we need to prepare for the inevitable. The garden will grow this season.
The rain may have delayed play for a time but, we’ve had no significant rain for over a week now and the soil is almost dry enough to dig over and weed. This is normally my least favourite chore in the garden, but as it is no longer cold and yucky outside it might be quite pleasant. So this will be my plan for the coming days.
But the behind the scenes preparations have been going on for months with the seedlings in the greenhouse. Irrespective of if the garden has been weeded or not – just so long as it is ready on time, the greenhouse has been a hive of activity with seeds being sown in succession, delightful seedlings emerging from what seems like barren soil, and transplanting… loads of transplanting… You can check it all out here with great tips on knowing when to transplant and how to do it here:
Come again soon – I’ve got a mountain of weeding to do.
