Changed the header photo as the picture of the cottage was taken when it still belonged to Mrs F and I don't want to take another now without leaves on the trees and hedges. The postbox is at the road end of our lane and is no good for posting anything much bigger than a postcard!
If you take out a subscription for Kitchen Garden Magazine you can get 3 months of magazines for £5 and 20 "free" packets of seeds. All you have to do is cancel the Direct Debit before they sign you up for another 6 months.
I've done this before and with a seed tin full of mostly old seeds and a garden waiting it seemed just the time to do it again.
They arrived................all sorts.........some useful and some I don't need which I shall pass on to my sister if she wants them or brother-in-law or a friend. The only problem is I'm still waiting for the first magazine to arrive and there is no contact address or phone number on their website. So if anyone has a copy of the magazine laying about could you leave a comment with their phone number.......many thanks.
I love seed packets...........the promise of food from the garden....nothing better
Monday afternoon and I finally got a chance to get seeds sown. Into the electric propagator went chilli peppers, sweet peppers, cucumber - two sorts, tomatoes - two different plum variety, aubergines and basil. On the bench without heat are lettuce and leeks. Some old packets were only a year or so out of date so I've tried them.........sowing more than I need just in case.
We have a little bit of money left on a Wyevale card and a voucher off compost so will detour there on the way to hospital to pick up multi purpose compost.
I keep forgetting to say welcome and thank you to all the followers who have switched over from the old blog. Hi to all 83...........already! Maybe a while before I get back to the 400+ !!
