An expensive hobby.

I've spent an awful lot of money on the garden this month. I've been very, very happy and excited about buying all of these plants. I would love to get a job that involves buying plants. Does that even exist?

I've bought five bags of compost, three bags of manure, five Japanese painted ferns, eighteen lavenders but half are for my dad. three lily bulbs, lots of squash seeds, sunflower seeds, pea seeds, lettuce seeds, Today I bought a Cornus Kousa var chinesii. :D I really love buying plants! I just need to find places for them all. :D I got fifty free Freesia bulbs with the tree too. :D :D :D

That doesn't even count all of the weed suppressant, cloches etc that I've bought too!

More seedling progress.

We have germination from the Ogen melon today.

I hope it does better than it did last year. The slugs just decimated everything last year. 

The poona kheera melons are fully open now and we have a third seedling showing its head.

My lavender arrived!

My lavender arrived and I can't believe how tiny they are!

I've potted them on so that they are a little bigger before they go into the lavender raised bed. 

We had a busy morning this morning and dug out three roses, a pretty big sycamore and levelled out the ground before covering it all over with weed suppressant. 

Poona Kheera cucumbers.

They're up! They're up! They're up!

I foresee an obsession coming on.

A bit of bottom heat. :P

These are the seeds that need a little extra heat. I hope this heater will be ok. Its been in the shed all winter.

I gave the chickens another ice cream, you can see them stalking it. 

And my first crops seem to be doing well. The radishes, mint and rhubarb are growing fast.
