Finished sowing seeds in pots. I have various sunflowers, calendula, cornflowers, herbs, candytuft, sweet peppers, tomatoes, peas, lettuce, and a few other things to go into the garden this year. Yummy. I would do more but I really do not have much space - so I am growing a lot in containers (main crop potatoes, etc). I have also scattered various seeds in the garden. There is something very stoneage about growing one's own.
Working in the garden is a true blessing. I am digging over the old flower beds, getting more natural compost into the soil, and starting again. I will post pics when it is all in flower.
A young female blackbird has been trying to nest in the honeysuckle next to our patio door. I do not know if she will make it but she keeps trying. Sparrows, blackbirds, robins, redpolls are all busy feeding and nesting around the garden. The place is full of life. I am enjoying every moment out there.
