Alas, progress is slow, excuses and excuses, a list as long as my arm.
This year I'd like to experiment with planting by the moon. I've started a little experiment right here next to my computer with some peppers and chilli.
Using info from this web site: http://www.the-gardeners-calendar.co.uk ... anting.asp
The synodic, biodynamic and sidereal all seem to contradict each other though so I'm gonna stick with synodic for now as it seems the most basic.
Also today, I had a little accident and tried to plant the house...
One of the seeds had sprouted
and the soil was beautiful and warm. It felt strange clawing through the soil to find the seeds. Well it makes the experiment that bit more exciting anyway.Tidying up us very much the order of processionThe white metal framed polytunnel is getting moved and some fresh plastic pulled over and secured properly this time, as the last one got destroyed by our charming north east weather.
So after spending an a lot of time tidying and getting motivated...I get some work
till the end of the month, 10 hour days. So I apologise hazel Grove, your makeover is coming soon.
Out of pure determination to stop the weeds growing back where I have just dug over, I returned on my way back home from work to lay some black plastic down.
