It’s a busy time in the garden now. What did you do this weekend? I transplanted some lettuce plants into tubs in the greenhouse. Transferred some cornflowers into larger tubs and placed them on the back yard. Some clusters of multi-coloured cornflowers have gone into the front border. Hopefully they’ll spread and come on their own each year. There’s some sunflowers in tubs now, also a few in the border on the front.
We have a well established fruit patch on the back garden consisting of strawberries that ramble and multiply. A great chunk of rhubarb. In the berries, there’s blackcurrant, redcurrant, blueberry, green gooseberry, red gooseberry and raspberry. Dotted among those are bluebells, whitebells, the beginnings of foxgloves, aqueliga, plenty of nettles and dandelions as well. We’ve just had apple and rhubarb crumble with custard for pudding. You know when you can’t decide on apple or rhubarb? The best solution – mix the two. It’s delicious. Not forgetting a generous splinkling of nutmeg, makes all the difference.
They’re looking for articles on gardening, details are on the blog. I’ve sent one in, hoping to hear soon. You get some seeds if your article is used. Always useful aren’t they?
We went out on to the market today with our shop goods. Lots of people around, and though it was lovely and sunny it was slightly windy. So being as I have sensitive skin, I wear a straw hat against the sun, which kept blowing off, so I had to tie it on because of the wind. I’ll blog off now, as I should be writing something else… Happy gardening, and writing. Or as our daughter keeps telling me, writing about gardening.
