Well, in the evening yesterday, I finally summoned the energy to fertilise the area where the artichokes grow with solids from the bokashi bin. Then, as dusk was falling, I realised I had got my second wind but of course by that time it was too late for more than planning what I would next.
In the event, there wasn’t time to do everything I would have liked this evening either – my daughter was well and truly hungry after a full day at playscheme, so juggling meal preparations with henna painting meant just the peas got sorted.
I’ve not used netting before to hold peas up… goodness knows why as it seems a lot more sensible than trying to keep the plants up with canes alone. However, before the plants get to the point where they need something to hang onto, I hope the pigeons don’t make a meal of them like they did a couple of years ago.
I think I’d better nip out and put the drawers which I saved from the old fridge freezer over them. It won’t cover them all but I might sleep more easily!
