The planting begins…

The planting begins… My seed order arrived this week.  I think I’ve overdone it a little!

In my defence I fully intend to plant everything I’ve ordered, but I can already tell we’re going to struggle to find room for everything.  It’s the same every year, I always end up juggling what goes where – you’d think I’d learn but apparently not!  I’d rather this than not have enough plants though, I can’t handle the idea of big patches of ground that aren’t growing anything.  And more plants in the ground = less weeds, right?

I couldn’t bear the sight of so much promise in little packets without doing something, so I’ve been making a start on planting this week.  This is the first year we’ve had a greenhouse and it’s great to be able to start the sowing a bit earlier.

Being in there in the sunshine was like a little taste of Spring, it was the first time in months that I’ve been warm while gardening.  A real contrast to the hard frost outside…
