After school today, my daughter wanted to go to the library to do some online homework, which meant I could use the library computers, too. Their firewall won’t let me use wordpress – goodness knows what it finds outside their rules and regulations but it did afford me the opportunity to purchase my first ever greenhouse. Yippee!!
Now, I wait with baited breath for its arrival. It’s going to be in the spot in the photo below. Since the soil is so compacted here from once being a path, this seems like a sensible space.
My one reservation is the loose branch in next door’s tree, which is inconveniently hanging over my side of the fence. That said, in all the strong winds this winter it has not budged, so I hang onto the hope that it will continue in this state at least until the autumn, when I intend to take the greenhouse down.
Meanwhile, I have noticed an onion growing in the compost which is finishing off. I am imminently going to empty that bin so that it can be filled with this year’s offerings, so doubt it will be much use in a meal. However, it just shows you what insulating capacity the metal bin has!
I think I spy daffodils coming up in the following patch of all sorts as well. Not so pleasing are the new crocosmia shoots, which I think will be coming out this autumn before they take over the garden.Anyway, spring is clearly on the march. Have a happy weekend, everyone.
