Congrats Flowerchild. Hope the job is everything you wish!
Five warm, dry days in a row here, so I've been a very busy boy! Got most of the path edging cobbles concreted in and the scalpings wheelbarrowed. Beds dug and planted for Dahlia and Asters I grew from seed so at last a bit of room in the shed. Put down weed fabric around my strawbs and covered it in twiggy bits sieved from the greatly reduced but still huge compost pile. That took FOREVER!!
Last Thursday I planted about 12 rows of various salad veg. The Mizuma is already up! Still no sign of the beetroot I sowed in March though!
Only three of the 25 french beans I planted in pots on 9th April have showed up. I didn't overwater this time so I'm at a loss.
@ Kate: Like yours a lot of my seedlings seem to have gone into a sulk and decided that they rather like being one inch tall. Perhaps the heat will make them change their minds.
@Wintersong: That is one serious ceanothus - must keep the bees going for miles around!
