After consulting the growing wheel I decided planted up the garlic.
I never have any luck with garlic, I don't know why, but this year I have a new tactic, I'm growing it in trugs as opposed to the ground, maybe I'll have better luck this year!
So armed with dibber and ruler I set to work planting the cloves 4 inches apart 3 inches deep.
I've then given them a little water and put them outside under a piece of greenhouse plastic. They might not need it over read they like the frost but...
After that, I've planted up some caulis and beets in the propagators, as an experiment really. It said on the packets plant early spring outdoors. I've never grown beets ever and never cauli from seed so I thought I'd see how they get on and I've got more seeds if needed. I've weeded half a bed, the other half has leeks in and then picked some leeks for tea. Though still at time of blogging on Sunday night I've not used them! I'm thinking leek and potato soup!
Today I've made some headway on the greenhouse. By that I mean I've taken down the majority of the wire that was on there used for the rabbit run. I'm going to use the wire to put around the rest of the beds on the plot.
This weeks jobs:
Frame the raised beds with wire
Weed the rest of the beds
Get past a one and a half mile run without getting a new blister!! ( any tips?)
Bye for now & happy planting! Xx
