February 19, 2007
Great weekend full of stuff! Went to see M,L and J this weekend in Manchester. The boys went off to the football (only HP's 2nd big match, he was v excited!) and me and L went off to John Lewis looking for curtains. I love that shop and yes I found my curtains at long last which now means I can plan the rest of the colouring for the bedroom. Back to the house for a few glasses of vino while we watched the match from the comfort of their sofa. A nice curry when the boys got back and then a quick sprint down the M6 and back at home by 1am, perfect!
Sunday was spent on the beloved allotment and it's looking more and more like somewhere you can actually grow food! I've dug another bed and tidied up a bed that looks like it might be a row of fruit bushes, unfortunately I need some identification on this and I did take photos it's just they took too long to upload at home yesterday - so are they or aren't they fruit bushes? and if anyone has some handy hints of how to tell just let me know. I was so pleased with all the work I'd done and it was so warm I decided to actually bite the bullet and plant something so in went my rhubarb and asparagus (photos to follow here too!) Now the blurb on the back of the packet said use manure but my trusted gardening friend T said he'd got rhubarb in his garden and hadn't used manure so I've followed his advice, but if my rhubarb dies then I know who to blame (just in case you're reading this T!)
One more question though, I think my seed potatoes have gone too far in their shoots and now feel a bit soft, is this normal or do I need to get some more and start chitting them again - I'd be grateful for advice!
