Weekdays are a blur

No matter how busy my weekdays get (and they do get busy!) I always try to make time for a little of this-ing and that-ing in the garden. It restores my "balance" and in the words of John Denver "fills up my senses".

The seeds I planted over the last two weeks are all saying "hello" to the world, the fine carrots (above), the strong stemmed broad beans (below) and if all I can do in the week is water them or put some eggs shells around them to prevent pests, then so be it.

My little guy planted turnips 2 weeks ago, but he planted them a little close so I have had to thin them this week. I washed the sprouts off and addeed them to our salads so that their fragile attempts at growing did not go to waste.

I am not sure whether my peas were planted too soon, it's better to plant them in July here, but we may get a few for our salads.

Weekdays tend to mesh into each other leaving little time for big garden jobs, but there is always something to do or see.

It makes me smile to see all the seeds germinating and emerging from the soil.....a great part of gardening. Your seedlings are doing great.
