Daughter Ann’s been sewing seeds while she’s waiting for an operation. This is the cress, also there are cherry tomatoes and broccoli. So the windowsill looks like a mini nursery at the moment. Not only is cress easy to grow, its sprouting after only three days. Ideal for the children to do during half term, then they’ll have something nutritious for on the egg sandwiches.
She’s just told me I’m babysitting them while she’s in hospital, so we’ve sorted out a spray bottle to keep them happy. Ann will create salad recipes for her own blog soon.
It’s a lovely thing to do, planting seeds. Especially on a sunny day. Next on the list are sweet peas and cornflowers, every garden needs them, and they help with the bees and butterflies.
You may think I’ve drifted off from the writing subjects that I’m normally blogging about. Maybe it’s the way the planets are aligned, or something to do with that we’re clearing out our shop and Ann’s staying for a while after falling on the ice and cracking her elbow. This is still my writing blog, just that it’s also a daily diary and this is what we’re up to at the moment. Apart from swimming this morning and leaving the lights on (Aaaargh…oh no, flat battery) which was a bit of a nuisance.
I’ve taken out a subscription to the Writing magazine. I keep buying it, so now it’ll be nice to have it drop though the letter box. I wrote a story called sewing seeds so maybe it’s time to brush it up and try it out.
