21 April 2014

and finally Easter Monday......

the last day of the 4 day weekend.  Its been busy, fun and productive long weekend.

I have learnt that a lot of women have a jeans dilemma, so I'm not alone.  My daughters say go straight leg, so I guess I will just have to suck it up and take a change.

The chickens have been named Florrie and Annie - after Peter's grandmothers!!  Their personalities are starting to come out already.  Peter rigged up a temporary run extension until he has time to build something substantial.  One of the girls escaped and he found her wandering around the garden.

We have been continuing to clear up at the bottom of the garden and seeds have been planted.  Chard, Spinach, Spring Onions, Shallots, Peas, Salad Leaves, Beetroot, Courgette.  The plants in the greenhouse are coming on a treat

Beans - runner, climbing and dwarf

cutting Sunflowers
Tomatoes - late again
Broad beans
French marigolds

and the proceedings were watched over by this little chap

I am hoping that I have done enough exercise to counter all the cake, buns etc I have eaten this weekend, if not then its time to bring out the salads.

I hope you all had a happy Easter.  Roll on the next holiday weekend in 2 weeks time.  And would you believe I've done no knitting for 2 evenings, I need to rectify that right now


  1. Lovely Ladies. Glad you had a Happy Easter.

  2. I just love this time of the year when everything is beginning to grow in the greenhouse and I'm itching to plant outside.
    I understand your jean dilemma, I've been the same with all trousers. Going back to straight leg I'm getting used to but, hem sitting on your ankle and not down to your feet, what is that all about?
