Four days of sunshine

Four days of sunshine is such a nice thing to be able to say. Good things come to those who wait is certainly my motto at the moment. I really can’t wait for my vegetable and flower plug plants to begin arriving.

I am itching to get out in the garden and enjoy this lovely sunshine with the kids but I haven’t had a chance to child proof the garden yet after the winter. I need to spend a (blissful) solitary day out there making sure that it is safe for the kids to be outside too as the cats have had a field day in the borders and one of the pots has cracked from the frosts.

I am not sure what to do with the broken pot as the tulip buds have just started coming through and I daren’t move them. My creative brain is suggesting wrapping the entire pot with some thick cord and hoping this will last for the next few months or at least until my tulips can be cut and put into a vase to be admired.

My order of the small plot vegetable collection means that I should be receiving some Lettuce Little Gem shortly. I need to go shopping with my eldest and find a suitable trough to plant these in to and then hopefully he will be keen to take ownership of them (and encourage him to taste lettuce too). Last year both the kids looked after the strawberries extremely well, so well in fact that I got to taste only a mere handful.
