I managed to get hold of the above publications which I like to have yesterday from Waitrose. I do not have a subscription to either although I wish I had.
I was delighted to find that between the two magazines there were 22 packets of seeds all told which include the following:
Kitchen Garden Magazine
Paris Silverskin Onions
Grow Your Own Magazine
Fennel and Lemon Balm
Sow (excuse the pun) I need to get a wriggle on and get those greenhouses sorted in the garden. Hopefully if the weather holds good will be able to venture out and start the clearing and also putting up the greenhouses again. One of the storms blew them over. However I am getting itchy fingers to get going. When I get a few minutes in the warmer months I often go off into the garden and potter doing a little of this and a little of that. It is extremely cathartic and soothing and I believe that being outside in nature and in the fresh air is extremely good for each of us health wise. It also gives you time to recharge your batteries and some peace and quiet.
I also need to get some compost and growing bags. I already have two rolls of fleece to pop over seed trays. I have plenty of seed trays in any event and pots. Really do need a heated propogator at some point. I also need a hoe and a new rake. OH bought me a new spade and fork. I also have my wooden Trugs, a couple of herb ones and a larger one for putting veggies in. I could do with a larger one yet as my "large" one is really only a medium size.
I have so many ideas I am buzzing, but then common sense and reality kicks in and slow and steady will win the day overall.
Overnight we had cold temperatures here in Peterborough and it has been cold today as well. No sun today grey and overcast and a little chilly. Hopefully things will get warmer again soon as I really do want to get out in the garden.
Catch you soon.
