I'm so so bored stiff

I'm writing the post because I'm so bored I mean really bored and frustrated every time I plan to go digging in the garden it's raining and every time it's nice I have other things to do it's nice and by the time I get home to rescue the spade from the boring corner it yes you've guested it, it's raining I'm really itching to get the new season started but I know if I start to early I'm going to fail and fall flat on my backside.I've even made some news paper pots but run out of news paper so now I'm checking the sowing dates on my seeds

Tomorrow is going to be a brighter day with some sun so hopefully I will be-able to do some digging

Frustrated gardener that just needs to do some thing

    Read a book.image

    Lots of gardening books to choose from. Start with Gertrude Jekyll, move onto Marjorie Fish, Vita sackville West, Christopher Lloyd, and Beth Chatto.

     Then replan your garden on paper, and get out the seed catalogues.

     I've got a whole day of picking up sticks tomorrow.

    The next day I can put them through the shredder.

    The next day there'll be another lot down.

    Roll on spring and real gardening.

  • I'm with you Clueless! I have lots of plants that need repotting but in this weather just trying to stop them floating away!

    I feel better as I got to do lots of gardening today. The rain did not commence here until late on.

    Clueless - I know what you mean. By the time the rain stops and I will back at work and it will be all over. Moping around the house, have looked online and read books but I just want to be out there!

    Really frustrated as well as our council charges an annual fee for the collection of garden waste. This is collected once a fortnight but not in the Christmas period - having to wait till mid jan and my bin is already full. Only space for one composter and this is full too....

    I feel your pain Clueless.  I want to be out in my Christmas wellies making my three vegetable patches but I can't.  My Christmas wellies have failed to appear and the land designated for the vegetable patches must wait until my partner has finished his man shed (March at this rate) so that he can use it as a dumping ground for soil / wood / man shed type things!

    Now I'm back at work its guaranteed to cheer up weather wise (new office so I don't even get a window to look out of) so I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else gets up too!

    What are you planning on growing this year?


    Bill - its been a couple of years since I've had to worry about power outages on a regular basis but I was amazed when our water was cut for several hours the other day just how quickly you get used to the idea of it always being there! How do you cope?

  • Blue sky's today, So I will try and get out in the garden and do some digging BUT the OH is at home today and that normally means running around after her.

    Do this do that get this get that, I need this I need that what's for dinner? what's for tea?. you get the idea.

    But it's dry so I'm off to get my boots on and out in to the garden.
