Weeding and fertilising


Exciting time - weeding and fertilising! The rain and recent heat has resulted in an abundance on weeds - I wish the plants I wanted grew as quickly as they do. I am spending my time keeping the hedges and vines under control, weeding, and giving the Summer crops are good dose of fertiliser before they start to fruit.  I have had mixed luck with seeds this year, with many of the latest salad veg seeds failing to germinate (either that or the birds got to them! Guess that Scarecrow is of no use).

Not much to report - garden wise


Over the past few weeks the bulk of my efforts have been directed towards dealing with the interior of the property rather than the garden.  Having said that I did manage to paint the front part of the front fence (a job which has been outstanding for about 3 years - still have the back of the fence and a side fence to go).  There has been painting, plastering, tiling and general cleaning afoot and I am very pleased to say that it is nearly all done.
