Reusing this year's soil

Posted: 30/09/2015 at 21:33

I bang the compost off the roots then add some FBB and use it for my bulb pots. Then next year it goes on the veg plot or compost heap.

Gladioli staked, borage picked for freezing in ice cubes for Pimms.

The last of the delphiniums picked for drying and making confetti.

Fingers sliced while chopping onions. Plasters applied.

Copper jugs polished.  Beef stew for dinner.

I spent yesterday catching up on news, sorting out phones, new boots, trousers, handbag, purse, cooking eating drinking.

Sunny here. Gladioli need staking. 

Good luck with the move, Wonky.

A week on Saturday. Two guests cancelled today. Everythings paid for.

Confusing info' re: onions sets (planting conditions)

Posted: 28/09/2015 at 21:58

My best onions are grown on soil that has well rotted fym added in the winter before planting, calcified seaweed added instead of lime, and then blood fish and bone added before planting. It works for me.
