I’ve just watered the compost with a pint of milk…. It is a shame to have mixed up the milk bottles in the fridge and used the newest first but such situations were what galvanised me to compost my food waste in the beginning. It doesn’t happen often but when it does, I don’t feel so badly about it.
Anyway, that is the sum total of what I did in the garden today. After only two days’ paid work this week, I am wiped out – and it has been so cold. Unfortunately, not cold enough to get the step ladders out.
On the other hand, various plants have a different idea of the weather. A neighbour’s cherry tree is already in blossom and when I was pruning at the back of the garden earlier in the week, there were bluebells shoots coming through.
These are hardly souls, so no doubt the hail this afternoon will have done them no harm. However, it is strange that the bluebells are emerging when I see no sign of glory-of-the-snow. Perhaps I disturbed the bulbs too much when I was removing violets at the end of last year.
