Building things, fixing stuff, wrenching on cars . . . . . and some other stuff too.
looks like you are off to a good start!!!
Looking good. I love planting seeds and thinking of all the food they'll produce for me.
Great collection of healthy seedling and plant. Must look at that, Great way to develop a gardenRob
Seedlings always look so valliant don't they?
Oh they sure do John, its the miracle of life. After this brutal winter just those small green sprouts give you hope. Ten days hence the lettuce sprouts are 5 cm high and the squash is 10 cm tall. Still to cold to plant outside though.
Those peat pellets look a bloody good idea! I shall have to take some back to Angola with me!
Tom: Glad to see you are well enough do some blog surfing and stop by for a visit. We've all been deathly worried about you and hope you get well soon The peat pellets should be available over there in the UK somewhere. They are likely a bloody English invention. Not all that much peat over here anyhow. I suspect your garden might look a bit worse for wear once you make it back to Angola in a few months and will have to start all over again. I hope the fig plant you went through so much trouble to get there survives without your attention. I expect you must have someone trustworthy that can look after the place while all of you are in London. Come to think of it that nasty infection could likely been something you caught messing about with the soil/manure in your garden. Over here we have on rare occasions seen such cases but it is usually among farmers who are up to their armpits in muck all day.
This time of the year is great, we get to watch something grow that will sustain us and bring joy growing something natural.
Hi John: I expect Alaska is a bit behind Maine in warming up enough to plant, but the indoor window seedling thing does provide some hope that life sprouts again. Th lettuce is 2 inches tall by now and the squash is about 6 inches. I'll have to post an update on the progress.
