A Quick Friday Update – Day 4 NaBloPoMo 2016

It’s been a mixed week. I’m trying to finish a uni paper and keep up with spring planting in the garden. Meanwhile, gastro has stormed through my household and has left all of us feeling a little less than wonderful!

There have been lots of good things though.

The last couple of mornings, I’ve been lifting more heads and weeding the beds as I go. While this year’s garlic crop will be less than last year on average, the heads are undoubtedly bigger.



As soon as the garlic’s gone I’ll be planting advanced tomato seedlings. A few weeks ago, I found an out of date packet of Debarao (aka De Barao) tomato seed while I was planting out this year’s summer vegetables and decided to plant the packet as well as some fresh seed. Amazingly, the new packet did nothing but the out of date all came up. I’ll be pricking these out into cardboard grow tubes in the coming weeks and probably giving a lot away to friends!


And finally, Bernard Black the Bunny is settling in really well. He is playful and cute and like most rabbits at that age, has a voracious appetite and the cutest, biggest, fluffy paws ❤
