Anyone done any gardening today? Part 5



  • Full of ideas and plans but not enough energy to do more than deadheading and watching OH trying to did out a Bottle Brush tree that is in the wrong place.  Luckily we also have one in the right situation that is thriving.

    Allotment , late afternoon , pruned apples trees and buddleia  , a couple of fence post snapped in yesterday’s wind , did a temporary repair . Burning pile at allotment getting bigger 
    O/H Trimmed leafs off g/h toms , garden bit nearly full again    
  • Slightly wet, grey day so not done much. Watered my rowan tree, staked a foxglove illumination pink that had totally flopped over! Then sulked because one of my first year foxgloves, the rosette had totally come off and left the root in the ground!?

    Hoping for some sun this week so I can get more done.

    Picked a lot of blueberries, so far I've picked 18 lb. All go in freezer and have a few for breakfast every day.

    Picked over two pounds of Roma tomatoes, which are now sauce, and made a banana cake while I was at it. Other than that just watering. Yes then it rained.🙄

    Planted some primroses, a Geranium, a Stokesia and a Phlox.  Did some deadheading and weeding and thats about it.

    It was dry today so am still beavering away at trying to get the ground levelled for new outdoor potting table which should be arriving soon. Levelling is difficult when the ground slopes in two directions so doing it the easy way by hand on my hands and knees - yes, I know I should dig it all out and put hardcore etc down first but I haven't the strength or the energy at the moment.

  • OH shredded some woody bits that had come down from the trees in the recent windy weather and also gave the compost heaps a bit of a nudge with added rotted leaves, horse manure and some barrows of soil left over from a previous project.  I dead headed, lightly prunes and tweaked here and there. Made plans to move a shrub to another more permanent place in a month or two.
