We had another very blustery day today. It must be very upsetting for the birds - I hope not too many nests have been blown down.
I began the day by feeding the conservatory and outdoor pot plants. I only feed the solely ornamental ones; the edible ones have to make do with homemade compost, until I make up some comfrey liquid. Then I had a good look round everywhere and pulled up a few weeds.
Then I spent a while in the vegetable garden. I hoed a corner bed; it was hard set and difficult, even though it's had loads of compost dug in. Later I watered it to soften it, put some canes in and planted the cucumbers. I worked some general purpose compost into the hole for each to give them a start.
The I planted out sprouts, more leeks, cavolo nero and bunching onions. I weeded round the peas, and did a lot of tidying up around the place because I don't think I'll be out for another couple of days.
Then I mowed the lawn. I did part on the lowest setting but I don't like the look and feel of it: none of our bits of lawn is very flat and even though the mower didn't scalp, the ground feels more lumpy with very short grass.
