I know I’ve been a bit absent recently, that’s because I’m helping Peter build a new website. But don’t think I haven’t been busy gardening too.

I’ve been sowing seeds and planting potatoes, onions and shallots. Sadly my knee is still bad and I can’t kneel down, so I’ve had to stick to mostly standing up or bending down jobs, which is fine at the moment, but soon I’ll need to get down (literally) to some serious weeding.

Germination rates have been pretty much as expected and the few surviving geraniums are beginning to look interested. I’ll write more later.
