Nasturtiums in January

Sometimes procrastination can be good. I had intended to take a photo of the nasturtiums in the front garden in December, as I was pleased they were still on the go then.

Anyway, this never happened but as I was coming home this lunchtime, I remembered to get my phone out and take the necessary. So, voila!

This might be the closest I get to gardening this weekend. Running for the bus on Tuesday I managed to do something to my knee and now have a decided limp. However, I will continue to top up the pond with water, although there seems to be more sludge than water at the moment (soil from the vegetables I’ve been washing).


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.

  1. sorry to read you have hurt yourself Helen, take care of yourself, maybe a little weekend pampering, Frances

  2. Sorry to hear about your knee – wishing you a speedy recovery! I’m very interested in the next pond update ๐Ÿ™‚

      My dad has found a pond liner in his garage which should do a better job than the one in there at the moment.

      Anyway, thank you, Martin. The knee just needs TLC for a while but is decidedly better than it was on Tuesday.

  3. Sorry to hear about your sore knee, Helen. I’m wearing a knee brace myself, though I didn’t do anything specific to injure mine. Age! I hope you’re on the mend.

    I hope your knee is back to normal. That is a terrible problem for a gardener.
