The Summer of 2012 has been truly rubbish so when I woke up this morning albeit thinking it was either 8am or 6am (it was neither, it was 7am), I had an urge to get things going again.
I know its been ages since my last post but to be honest, not a lot has happened in my Veg Patch other that failings and more failings with just a sprinkle of success. So I was secretly counting down to today, the start of when you can open the curtains and expect to see rubbish weather and know its OK.
So in the cold rain with a mug of coffee and the portable radio, off I went to get things going for 2013. First up, the greenhouse. It needed clearing out badly. Having done that, I erected the small blow-away greenhouse to sit inside the glass greenhouse and thus keep temps above freezing all the way through winter for a few pots of something I've yet to decide to grow.
Finally I covered my carrots with cloches in the hope they grow a little more bigger than babies of baby carrots in time for Christmas. I also laid fleece over my overwintering onions and garlic bed as the cats around here like to pull them up and then do their business to further annoy me. Not this year pussy cats!!!
So there we are. A short but sweet post and here's hoping for a quick winter to pass. Just a few more jobs for this year and I'll update on that as and when I choose to do them :)
Thanks for reading. HAPPY GMT DAY \o/
