Turning jolly chilly now that the sun's over the other side of the house so I've come indoors, but it's been lovely outside. Lots of jobs done and lots of bedlinen dry on the line too.
I've sprinkled a little potash around the sprouting broccoli - I didn''t dissolve it in water and water it on - nothing needs more water than it's already had and it'll get well watered in if the forecast this week is anything to go by, but I thought a little potash might remind the broccoli what it's supposed to be doing!
The Shady Bank is much tidier and has had a sprinkling of Fish, Blood & Bone which will also get watered in this week. Lots of perennials peeking through and I've layered some clematis and will do the same with honeysuckles soon.
The herb bed has had a bit of spring clean, but the area where the dill and lovage are needs digging over - the lovage has outgrown that spot so it can co
me out - it'll give the grape vine a bit more room to do it's thing.
I really must decide which rose I want for this end of the Shady Bank - I've got a long list of possibles - can't make up my mind - and I also need another clematis to go behind whatever rose I choose - choosing is so much fun isn't it
Oh, and glorious news - I lifted the top of the rhubarb forcing pot for a peep, and there's enough rhubarb for a crumble later this week - how's that for a result?
