Life is what happens...

... while you are making gardening plans!

Thank you to Staycalm for asking how I am! Nothing's gone very wrong here; it's just been very busy. There have been a number of family birthdays -- the Sprig turned three, for example, so that meant party preparations one weekend instead of gardening.

I also managed to re-injure my neck. It was much more painful than the car accident injury, but unfortunately unrelated to it, so I have to pay for the physio myself instead of relying on Workcover. It's much better now, but the physio believes I have an underlying problem, and that means more exercises.

We've just had a full week of rain and the back yard is saturated. No planting here for a while, especially as more rain is forecast for this week. We did manage to plant our 'Social Climber' sweet peas and 'Turkish Delight' pansies as planned. I also got the Sprig to plant some Nasturtium 'Peach Melba' seeds, but I suspect the rain has probably done for them. We'll see.

Good to see you back.
Life - don't I know it. Spent the whole weekend cleaning the house inside. Never got near the garden :-(

At a quick glance I am feeding the snails and slugs plenty of lovely volunteer cos and brown mignonette lettuce, as well as lots of lovely spinach but I still have plenty for us. The snow peas are producing well and my volunteer broad beans are going great guns. Really must get around to actually planting something else for winter...

Oh, I envy you your snow peas! I would love to see some in my garden but snow and sugar snaps don't seem to grow as reliably as the ordinary kind. Not for me, anyway! Let's hope next weekend sees us both out in the garden once more.
