A little cooler again today. I've been at work all day, teaching a Year 1 class that I don't usually have. The morning was spent writing about the trip to the beach and in the afternoon they drew pirates. Nothing too strenuous. I finished up quite quickly at the end of the day so I went into town. I was looking for cards for birthdays that are coming up in the next few months as I remember not feeling like walking in crowds for some time after the last spinal op. I was going to buy my usual treat of carob coated ginger but one health food shop didn't stock them and the other one had run out.
I managed to fit in some gardening when I got home; hoeing the veg plots and filling up the gaps with more bean and pea seeds. At least I'll have a succession of crops, that is if the slugs don't eat them. Last week I potted up 2 chili plants that I had grown from saved seeds. Ever thrifty I used the compost from the pots where nothing had germinated and up came ? probably another pumpkin but possibly a courgette. I'll plant that out soon. In the veg plots I have 2 cane wig-wams. which were initially planted with runner beans. None of those, admittedly old seeds grew but 1 that I put in pots did. Then I found an old packet of sweet pea seeds so I planted those by the canes. Today I also found a packet of sunflower seeds so I've planted those inside the canes as well. It would be amazing if all that lot did grow.
