My Garden and Greenhouse

My wife Muriel and I still enjoy our garden even although at this time of year there is a lot to be done just to keep the place tidy! It is a topic of conversation exchanging comments about our current aches and pains, hopefully we will get a bit fitter as the Spring turns to Summer

I also enjoy my greenhouse and have been growing various plants in it over the winter. Sweet peas, polyanthus, etc. Muriel gave permission to put my polyanthus seed trays in the fridge early on, so it was fun seeing then flower recently. I now have lots of plug plants growing on, and have also got  my tomatoes plants in. I still use a 40 watt heater at night just in case of frost. I also have lots of strawberry plants growing which I wintered in the greenhouse.  I hope this is a good year for the tomatoes, I’ll be able to let you see the results in due course.IMG_3545
