Moving and Feeding and in a bad mood (beware)
Well after trying to fathom out how to work my mobile phone via my car head unit and giving up with stomping feet and a umph kind of sound, I decided to just do a bit of gardening in MY garden. Yes I am in grumpy mood by the way.
Had the idea of starting potatoes but you know how it is when you get out in the garden and what you meant to do you end up not doing and do something completely different…. well that’s what I did anyway.
Played around with the compost, which basically means moving any twiggy crap to one side and getting to the good stuff, spooned in a bit into my tub and took tub to new little mini tiny fruit garden and put the compost around my gooseberry plant and raspberry plant and forked it in a bit.
And bu**er me!!! my little twig that I popped in the ground has sprung to life. I had a go at propagating a single twig off of the gooseberry plant whilst I was pruning it. I basically just chucked it in the ground and forgot about it (my method of gardening). Its growing leaves! So I put a little bit of compost around my new baby to help it on its way. Fingers crossed I might have two gooseberry plants by the end of the year instead of just the one! Will miracles never cease!
Anyway, I then decided in my infinite wisdom that I was going to move my lavender plants from their temporary place to their permanent place out in the front garden. Had to do a spot of weeding first and dug the ground over a bit, then planted them up. I think they could do with a bit of trim as they look a bit straggly, but I’m so pooped I’ve stopped. And I can feel things in areas I don’t want to feel them so quit whilst I’m a head.
There are caterpillars absolutely everywhere I look which is a shame cause I’M NOT GROWING BRASSICAS THIS YEAR SO GO HUNGRY LEAF MUNCHERS!!!
