Early morning potting

Are you a lark or an owl? Not sure I am either but over the last couple of days I’ve been getting up super early to do some gardening before breakfast.


So, now all the tomato plants have been potted on. And the first aubergine has poked its seedling head through the compost. Two pumpkins have also come through and are looking strong. I wonder if the ones I planted directly in the ground will come up too?

Haven’t decided whether to go up to the allotment tonight – it did rain briefly last night so it could be weed mayhem again 😉

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
