Radishes, mixed leaves and the first three pea plants (so ahead of their little brothers) in their final bed.
While Lovely Hubby did the back breaking job of filling in around the raised beds at the back of the house, (the stones we had removed to be able to put in the beds had to be shovelled back wheelbarrow load after wheelbarrow load),
I got on with planting up in the polytunnel. Moving some plants into pots from trays, planting some, snug in their toilet roll tube pots into the ground and planting tray after tray of new seeds, so we have some successional crops (salad etc).Whilst I was doing this (and jigging away to the radio) I got to thinking about how complimentary we are to each other, I could never do the heavy work that LH does, he loves the 'man' stuff...seeing huge changes brought about by hard physical effort, he would hate to have to stand in one spot (even with a bit of jigging) moving delicate little seedlings carefully to their next home, knowing that in two weeks he would have to move them again.
We are very complimentary!
And whilst we got on with all this.......the chickens walked the plank! # Tomorrow a post about how I 'chicken-proof' my veggies. The time has come to think survival of the veggies!! # Sue xx
