Happy St. Patricks Day ALL (not Paddy's Day)

Conas a ta do garrai glas ar an la deas sinn?

I started with a trip tip to Woodies with herself indoors (for non edible plant supplies) and ended up planting out some of my windowsill broccoli & cauliflower plants plus carrots, parsnips & leek seeds in the raised bed. I was very motivated by the great progress of my potatoes, garlic & onions under the cloche in the raised bed.

Any of you guy's get your hands dirty today?

Regards
HIM WHO NEEDs TO GET OUT MORE
(that Dissarano wen't down nice though!)

I hope you all had a lovely St Patrick's Day. I had a wonderfully lazy day, Lius, and definitely did not get my hands dirty.....just checked that all my emerging seedlings in my little glasshouse were all OK.
And the husband even had a couple of winners at Cheltenham, so a contented day all in all !

Belated Happy St. Patricks!

I definitely got my hands dirty! Got through the bulk of my weeding in last year's borders, cut out dead growth from the winter, found a few slugs (Liz +1, Slugs -3), bought rooting compound and feed for camellias & hydrangeas, planted in one of the delphiniums and moved the tomato seedlings to my outdoor plastic green house.

The next three days are now the veg time! Onions, potatoes, carrots.

P.S. Treated myself to a Disaranno last night too, well deserved so I thought!

Great Video inishindie, are you using soil in those raised beds? No worries about weeds? The hazel's are a great alternative to bamboo. Have you tried Cordaline leaves to tie stuff together in the garden? they are tough as wire.

Liz D is a brave woman moving Tomatoe plants into an unheated greenhouse, mine will be on the windowsill for a bit yet.

What a great tip about the cordyline leaves....A use for them at last Smile

It is soil I'm using, if there are any weed seedlings brave enough to pop their heads up I have a shiny Chillington Dutch hoe to slice them down....
