Gardening in the fabulous spring sunshine; my raised beds are a mess! The Pigeon scares are effective but I think they are in for a re-vamp, too.
It is still too wet to do any proper weeding; besides I want to transplant the fox gloves, mullein and forget-me-not that have self seeded in the vege patch when the ground has warmed up a bit.
I force endive and dandelion underneath the plastic buckets
Blanched dandelions taste wonderful in salads. I almost prefer them to the endives.
Lamb lettuce grow everywhere, even in the walls!
Beetroot and rocket have over wintered well…
and my brussel sprouts are still going strong, I wonder if my snap dragons will be too leggy to look pretty this year…do I cut them back?
winter lettuce and garlic and…more weeds and flowers. I love these large water bottles; they are great as mini cloches and they also seem to keep away cats.
So, dinner, then. What shall it be?
Perpetual spinach, brussel tops and sprouts, perhaps.
Stir fried with ginger, red onions and garlic!
And then; flat out on the sofa with a bottle of wine to watch a DVD.
The studio will have to wait until tomorrow; it is Sunday, after all.
