Yesterday the temperature inside the bin was 105
degrees!!!' no wonder it composts
I love Honeyballs and tulips and have added a few more varieties here and there.
If you have ever visited Wales in spring you will know daffodils are EVERYWHERE...so I haven,t put any in pots unless they are scented ones. I have repotted some bargain hostas I bought 2 weeks ago!!!! I know 2 weeks but as is my usual style it took me ages to get around to it. But they are done now and I know where I have put them is shady, and relatively slug free.....
This morning I measured my intended raised bed space. I think instead of one big one I will have 3 smaller ones. I had 4 raised beds back in Kent and wouldn,t plant veg any other way. I had a look on the net and the price seems to have dropped from when I first bought mine. I will speak to Chris our garden man to see what he thinks, make or buy??? In the meantime I will pop down to a neighbour who has horses and get some horse poo as I think when the Hotbin is emptied a bit more , adding that every now and then will not doubt speed up the composting and I hope by the time the beds start going in I won,t have to buy too much compost.
The weather is supposed to be nice until the weekend so I will probably spend this time in the garden.
The patio looks a mess, so this is probably a job for tomorrow. All the pots look muddy and full of weeds so think it will be a all day job. Hubby has been happy pottering doing inside jobs whilst I've been outside , we make quite good team and it is nice not to be getting under each other's feet!! Plus
He has been making sure I have some lovely cold drinks to keep me going...
, ,, See you soon xxx
