In the morning I went to the garden centre to spend some birthday money on bulbs. I also stocked up on plant food that was on offer. Then I found I still have loads in the shed, but it’s not a problem as I’m doing pumpkins next year.
Once the fog had lifted I did a shift in the afternoon. I spread office coffee grounds on beds 1,2 and 8.
I got a hedgehog house yesterday, so I hope it will encourage the hedgehog back into the plot. I tidied up the weeds under the apple tree (and got pinned to the fence by a bramble). The ground it a lovely mix of wood chip, rich soil and dead leaves. Perfect for hedgehog food.
I mixed up a bucket of straw and leaves to put inside and around the house.
I’ve done more trellis tidying and pulled up more morning glory mess. The stuff is going to be all over that bed next year. I wonder if it would like to climb up the planned sweetcorn?
As part of the tidying, I’ve put all the remaining marigolds into Bed 2 as we don’t seem to be in danger of a frost any time soon.
