weather and gardening

The unseasonal weather continues, so we are tidying and weeding before the weather turns.

The mild weather is not a friend to the garden, with mildew growing fast.

We need some good cold weather to kill the bugs and slugs!!

Still we think of next year. The spring cabbages have been planted out, the onions and garlic are showing green shoots. Today I sowed nine large pots of Sweet Peas as the seeds had started to germinate.

Happy New Year to you...

I have just returned from a watery walk
Damp leaves cling to the dogs' fur
My hair is a mass of tight little grey curls
My skin is wet
It feels very good to be alive and able to feel
