Simple work in the garden

Got some simple jobs done today, weeded the vegetable beds, cleared a strawberry bed of weeds/grass and invasive mint (Paul did most of it!).  Sown some more seeds, runner beans, peppers both sweet and hot variety.  And watered all the other seeds/seedlings.

I have updated the planting record here.

Paul mowed the lawns yesterday, and they all look lovely.  He’s been using a petrol hedge cutter to get the hedges looking good, and they look very smart now.

I’ve been deadheading the daffodils as much as possible.  We do have quite a lot of them growing, so I just pull the deadheads off as and when I get a minute.

One of our clematis is starting to flower, tiny white buds, almost ready to bloom.  So I now know that it is an early flowering clematis, and needs to be trimmed and pruned back in June.

All these simple jobs make me happy, I love pottering around out there, looking at the pond, seeing what’s happening in the greenhouse, and identifying all the plants we have growing in the beds.  I’ve identified Poppy plants in the bed near the greenhouse and spotted some pink Bleeding Hearts peeking out under a tree near the pond.

Poppy leaves are easy to spot, they are spiky and feathery looking.  Can’t wait for the flowers to come up!

Thanks for reading!
