I know what you mean about getting in the zone Victoria Sponge. Have just come in from the garden. Spent the day tidying out and cleaning the greenhouse, sowed some sweet peas, dug up the last of the carrots and dug in some potash from the fire.


felt rather guilty about displacing a few spiders! 


Plant labels in the dish washer to see if that'll clean off the pencil for me. 


Now defrosting my hands around a nice cuppa.

Morning


Whilst making a casserole last night I went to the back of the cupboard to open the last bag of stored potatoes and got quite a shock to find this! Not sure why it happened to just this one bag as the rest were fine!


As these were grown in our garden last year from garden centre bought seed potatoes, can I use these (heavily chitted!) as seed potatoes this year? If not, can they be put on the compost bin or should I just chuck them? Thanks!

I'm gardening in my head at the moment. Plan on getting the heated propogator out this weekend to get some seeds going. 


Other half bought me some gardening dungarees and a blue Monty style jacket late last year. Can't wait to get them dirty!


have been watching Alice Fowlers Edible Garden on the commute and it's got me all revved up. Trying chard and kale for the first time this year.
