Work While Its Dry

Sunday was surprisingly dry (for a change) so we rushed outside to do all the little jobs we've been putting off!

I brought some Leeks from the local garden center, it was supposed to be 6 Leeks for £1.50 but when you looked closely at the trays most of them had at least 2 plants per plug, so we got 24 Leeks for £3 which was brilliant!



I put them in where I lifted the potatoes as they like nitrogen rich soil, fingers crossed they do ok, I haven't grown Leeks before (Rich is already anticipating Leek and Potato pie)



A lot of the other stuff in the veg patch I'm just leaving alone, it seems to be coping fine without me fussing over it...



I'm really pleased with the Beetroot, again I just bunged it in and left it to its own devises...



Another pressing job that I have been trying to do was net the Blueberries, we had to make the cage bigger this year as the bushes have grown quite a lot, Rich built the wooden bed frame back in February, I just needed to get the netting on it.



I had to take the netting off the Strawberries as we didn't have enough without that to over the new huge frame!



While all this was going on, Rich spent the day giving the Landy a bit of TLC, in other words filling some of the gaping holes so the rain doesn't keep coming in...



Bless him, he loved every minuet!!

Another Sunday well spent!

Martin's favourite lunch in the winter is Leek and Potato soup. It's the only reason why I grow leeks at all!
