Well, January has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster, exacerbated by the weather and the fact I can't get in the garden to do anything. It's made me realise, that although grass walkways look good in summer, they are no good in Winter. Even traipsing up to the greenhouse to check on it means squelching along in wellies, trying to pick a tussock of grass that is not under mud. The old house in the wood next door is being renovated. This morning I was woken by a chain saw, closely followed by a big digger demolishing the pigeon sheds.They are going to level it and plant grass seed. Good luck with that one, its totally surrounded by big trees. My grass on that side is heavily infested with moss, it gets little light at this time of year , better after Easter, when the sun is higher in the sky.
I'm thinking a short holiday is in order, a long one is no good, I have seedlings and plants to monitor now, and no one I can trust to water for me.
Onion seeds to plant soon, then sweet peas. Most other things wait until early March.
Have a good day everyone.
