Small mercies. We seem to have remembered that this is a shared space and not a cat retirement home.
Andrew very kindly bought me two sacks of our favourite potting compost (Floragard) last Thursday. So I was able to get to and pot on all sorts of sown from seed plants.
And some of the ones I potted up last month were already growing out of their containers. I do love lustily growing plants.
And I even had time to pot on some good winter crops – Pink Passion Swiss Chard. I have finally learnt how to enjoy my acres of chard. Boil first and then stir fry. Twice cooked does the trick.
I even noticed that the little brassicas I sowed just a few days ago have germinated. In between biblical floods, the weather is quite mild. We are having 21C days. Chilly in the mornings when I go up to feed Artur and Jean Daniel’s birds. But it warms up quickly and the potting shed is positively toasty.
