Planting and such

A box of goodies arriving from Diggers is always exciting. I'm looking forward to getting all that garlic in the ground plus the homegrown cloves I have. I must have planted the right amount last year (not that I remember how many that was) because we still have some garlic left to eat as well as plant. It rarely works out so well.

I ran out of the crimson and chocolate flowered broad beans and they really do look lovely in the garden so I ordered some of those too. From what I can tell, they don't have any difference in taste but they do add some interest to the colour palette of the garden when they are in flower.

Having the usual problem a change of season brings. The old plants- tomatoes, chillies, eggplants, beans etc are still in fine form but I need room for the winter vegies. So I'm pulling out bits and pieces and popping plants here and there in the spaces available. I did hoe a rather large patch to grow some overwinter grains.

What else have I been up to. The regular work plus a road trip yesterday to pick up my parents. It was lovely to see my sister who met me half way.

I've had to go shopping more than I like too. Someone in my household loves to walk around clothes shops and can do it for longer than my nerves can cope with. I think her next shopping expedition will have to be with friends. 😧 Having said that I can probably spend quite some time walking around plant shops without the same anguish.

Anyway. I am home alone and not for long and I want to get those garlics in the ground.
