Diary of garden related activities, notes and observations



Personal circumstances delayed many late Autum and early Winter gardening tasks, not least cleaning and tidying the greenhouse. Then came the freezing cold and prolonged sub zero temperatures, then the seemingly endless drizzle. But 2023 was off to a bright start, not too cold and some sunshine! Hurrah! A good day for doing the greenhouse but the webmaster had other ideas and used the pressure washer to clean daughter's van which she is trying to sell, her car which under the grime really is a nice blue and his car which is still relatively new. The novelty of keeping it clean will wear off soon. I cut down the raspberry canes and raked the gravel paths between the veg beds. Keeping fingers crossed for another nice day tomorrow to do the green house.
