A very happy Earth day to you all! As residents of this fine planet I hope you’re having a wonderful day. 😀
So there are more little sweetcorn sprouts appearing, and everything else is getting bigger 🙂
Yesterday I removed yet more bindweed…. and tidied up a few bits. My other half fixed a very strong bracket for my new large hanging basket my Mum bought me for my tumbling tom tomatoes…. I keep hearing people say that there may be snow in May?! So I think I will wait a wee longer to plant things out.
Oh I also tried a spot of organic pest control yesterday. The garden is full of ladybirds :-), and I moved a few (very gently) onto some of my spearmint (Mentha spicata) which seems to have an infestation of aphids. I saw them munch away on a few… but fly away later. However, my friend consoled me saying that if they have laid any eggs then their larvae will be extremely good in controlling the aphid population.

I may pop a few courgette seeds in later. I will plant these in a large bag thing on the deck… Last year I put them in the raised bed and it took over everything else. The courgettes were very tasty though!
Happy planting! 🙂
