My apple is blooming. I still don't know where to place it so it is standing in a container. But he seems not to mind, seeing the abundance of beautiful flowers.
My strawberries are doing good as well. If I have as many strawberries as I have flowers I sure will be in heaven.
From Alan Titchmarsh I learned that the best thing in spring would probably be the first pea right out of the bean. I never grew peas before, but I'm sure willing to try. I do find their growing methods already quite enchanting.
I have no idea what to sow in the cold frame, but I have devised a new way of filling it. You see, the cold frame I have is made out of an old window from my parents house. It is 1 x 1 meter, and so a lot of ground inside. I don't want to buy multiple bags of compost soil to fill it, but it needs filling, for the ground inside is very poor. And so I was thinking, why shall I not fill it with compost from my own compost bin. Well you probably say; duh, why don't you. Well, the trouble is that I have no real compost, you still see the leaves there. I don't know know what I'm doing wrong, but it is not real earth by far. But for the contained cold frame that doesn't matter. I'm going to grow pumpkins there, for they seem to like compost anyway.
I've placed my garden gnomes outside recently. Isn't she looking lovely.
Hi, I'm Bregtje. Here you can find me with my head up side down in the garden. But I also can be found with my head in a newly home made cupboard or above the kitchen stove or even between piles of paper, sticking stuff in arty albums and brushing away with paint! And now I'm developing a new hobby to add to my ever growing project list: blogging about it all! Please find my Garden blog, Kitchen blog, Homemaking blog and Arts blog here!
