We woke to a sunny morning, after our usual Sunday Brekkie DB went out to paint preservative on the back of the fence we had put in. I decided to tackle a bit more of the border.......mistake.....back and legs started to protest.......I sat down for a few minutes and then started again.....oohhhh, I did manage half and hour, so not too bad, just have a small piece to tackle and then I can start planting out the plants from the nursery.
I phoned up yesterday to price up compost from a local garden centre, I need it delivered.......£50 ouch......I need enough to put a deep layer all over the herbaceous border.
Supper tonight, roast chicken, stuffing and veg. May be rhubarb crumble for dessert.
There were two ripe strawberries in the garden last night, so we had one each, scrummy, cannot wait for some more to ripen. Our strawberries are all from runners from Cambridge Favourite plants which we bought for our garden in Port Seton in 1994. We have taken them everywhere with us and also given a lot of the runners away. The first lot we planted when we came here in 2015 will be taken out at the end of the growing season. Runners planted in a new bed.
