Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 22:53

Evening all

I am knackered me today was trying to sort out putting up my bean canes which was very tricky - as I have those round cane circles to make wigwam shape, every time I tried to put canes into a wigwam shape or push some into the raised bed the bits of the circle came apart so took a long time - very hard to do - would of been easier to just use a bit of string, did not think it would be that tricky.

Well finally done and have sowed French beans- blue lake, cherokee trails of tears, lazy housewife and gold rush, Runners beans - white emergo, red rum and enorma, that's a lot of small wigwams oh and a borlotti bean as well

I watched the last programme of Chelsea as well today nice to see the highlights shame it is the end for now like watching gardening programmes on TV, I will watch some bits again on iplayer and need to watch A to Z of TV gardening and beechgrove on iplayer yet for today as missed enjoy them both.

Watched country file and they had a nice bit about wild flowers will be growing loads this year.

Weather on forecast for Southampton is meant to be dry tomorrow, think I will need to rest a bit more still bit ill - maybe I will sit in garden see how much sun some areas get in the day like Alan Titchmarsh did on A to Z last week

Nutcutlet sure I spotted a bat a week ago while in the garden late flying about were lots of starlings about today fighting over the feeder

What did you do in your garden today?

Did a small bit of Chelsea chop on the red campion as I thought I would see if it would work on that and - so I could have some indoors to enjoy as well

Evening All  

Fairygirl me going to eat cake soon nice cream tea

GG like your garden great pics

Yesterday I brought a garden shredder - second hand and got some free pea plant as well which was nice also checking plants at the station looking OK

Here's a pic have not used it yet

Today I was out sowing dwarf beans direct then suddenly it hale stones on me - not nice and cold

Later sorted out planting out a few plants variegated honesty from seeds that nutcutlet sent me and a few I brought from the fair up the road last weekend

started raining again brought online plug plants from GW mag - lavender and ended up buying a dwarf honeysuckle as Chelsea showed someone yesterday wanting to know how to shape plants and said something about wire - so thought I might have a go with that if I can
