made myself a herb garden today!! went to my local landscape depo for some large sandstone rocks early this morning..they wanted €12 per rock!! so..off i drove up the mountains,collected some sandstone rocks free of charge! i also have some bark chippings to spread behind the rock section so weeds wont take over.

You are back!!

I love when you start up again with the photos and descriptions Nozebleed, now the growing season is in earnest.

Everything looks great as usual, you always seem so far ahead of me. I have planted the onion and garlic as usual, and spinach is done also. But the seed trays are bare for now. Tomatoes and Cucumbers are in the heated propagator and doing well. But none looks as good as yours.

By the way how is your old pal THE CAT!!! Laughing

yep..im back..flying on the garden front. started digging at the end of last years growing season,added lots of manure and seaweed to the plot. made 3 trips to dublin bay for seaweed in the freezing cold..but its worth it. the seed trays are full..loads of cabbage ready,one tray of cauliflower,goin to start tomatoes and chillis this week..the indoor grow garden gets things motoring so quick. you have to buy one..it takes all the uncertainty out of sowing seed. nearly a 100% germination rate.

i still have cats visiting. 3 now...the neighbour leaves her cats bowl in her front garden and this is attracting more cats to the area..im not going to go into it but im pretty miffed. i even found a cat in the greenhouse one day...unreal.

plan on putting onion sets down around paddys day,same for early spuds,might let thecshallots grow on a bit in the greenhouse another few weeks. cabbage will be transplanted 1st week in april,carrots and peas too.

going to sow cucumber direct to the soil this year as ive never had a bumper harvest,maybe its down to sowing too deep in pots or something..i dont know. anyway we,ll soon find out.

good to hear from you again maeve,keep posting!

Decided to dig a trench in my pea plot for some spuds!! its 10ft long,8 inch deep and 1ft wide.

last few years i found the area between trellis rows would just become a weed bed. so im gona give it a go and see what happens..

One thing im unsure about is..whether i should use the trench for earlies or main crop potatoes.

when should main crop potatoes be planted? or can all spuds be planted around paddys day.

Will the spuds not grow too big and over shadow the peas.

to be honest..i dont know. i dont think so anyway..im going to plant early peas either side of the trench at the same time as the spuds go down,the pea seed should germinate and get going well before the potato foliage gets above ground. thats the theory anyway...should be interesting. i,ll keep you posted..
