A new gardening year and stopping in


Hello All

A new gardening year starts !  Yesterday I started 70 Shirley Tomato Seeds off in propagators in the front greenhouse. I also started 4 trays of seed onions off. a tray each of Ailsa Craig, Marco, Red Baron and Sturon. There are approx 200 seed to a tray. When they have grown large enough to handle I will prick out into plant pots with 10 to a pot and grow on until large enough to plant outside. There should be some onion plants left over to either give away or sell.

Today I am starting off Sweet Peas. I have all sorts of odd seed which I am going to mix together and grow as a mix with two  to a pot which I will plant  when large enough as they are to one pole and disturb the roots as little as possible. 

Mind you this might have to wait a day or two as I have a really bad cold and rather need to stay indoors to nurse my runny nose and shivery self. As I have been shielding with David and haven't left the holding since  before Christmas (apart from yesterday to post some letters ) I have no idea where I caught this cold!

If I don't go out I have plenty to do inside ( no surprise!) So today I hope to..

  •  Transfer 2020's honey from buckets into jars for sale.
  • Make three birthday cards for the family January birthdays.
  • Knit the front band for a cardigan I am making from my wool stash
  • Find five matching buttons from the button tin for said cardigan
  • Take photographs to illustrate my next blog
  • Do a spot of internet shopping (hacksaw blades/ 2 pint basins/ blue shoe polish and research microwaves as our has gone kaput.

 You will note that there is absolutely no housework on the list !!

On my sustainability theme, I have found that old tea shirts make the best floor and polishing cloths.

Enough you cry.

Back Soon






  1. You are so busy makes me feel really lazy
    Hope the cold goes soon

    1. if you look at the list non of the tasks are exactly onerous are they? Mind you I do love a good list!
      Cold already getting better thanks

    2. iI’m lauriel from New York, United States. I lost my job a few months back after my divorce with my wife. I tried everything positive to make sure I took good care of my kids but all failed, and I was in debt which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me to stay with her for some days while I figured out how to get a home which she agreed to, but no one was willing to help anymore. I bumped into this page from google and I was excited about this, then I contacted the hackersBill Dean. I had just $200, so I pleaded with them to help me because of my condition but they never accepted. I believed in this, so I managed to pawn a few things and got $500. I ordered the $10,000 card and I got my card delivered to me by Ups 4 days later. I never believed my eyes! I was excited and upset as well, I managed to withdraw $2000 on the ATM and $2500 the second day. I went to Walmart and a grocery store and bought a couple of things for $3000. The card got blocked the third day and I contacted them and I was told it's a mistake from my end. I’m so happy, I have started all over again and have a good apartment with my kids you can contact him through is via email ( his whatsap contact (+1 301-887-5071) 

  2. I had to laugh about the housework. :) Good for you for getting seeds started! I don't have a greenhouse, so I'm thinking next month for mine. Nice that you have so many projects in the works.

    1. I LOVE a greenhouse. many crops that we grow have to be started in greenhouse or they would never reach maturity

  3. You are so busy and energetic. Hoping you feel a lot better soon. Colds can be miserable!

    1. Not really. Thank you my cold already improving now, must be the medicinal whisky!

  4. Gill, your energy and fortitude make me ashamed of my laziness. Hope the cold is better soon. Take care.
