Brine pickled cherry tomatoes with chilli and garlic cloves. Everything but the salt water was out of my garden. Also home grown chilli and garlic oil :)

The aforementioned seedlings, waiting for May, when they can go out in the garden

honey the toaster has become sentient what do we do in this situation

My squash seedlings were wilting in the unseasonable heat, so I fed them some of the compost tea told me how to make, and I have never seen anything like the recovery. Wow! Happy plants :)

That stuff looks and smells despicable but it just goes to show that you really can't judge by appearances ;)

Free propagator; one mushroom carton stood on top of the other. I melted holes in the top one with a heated skewer.

Does anyone know what this is? Unfortunately, I don't think it's chickweed. The flower seems to have rounder, fewer petals, and the leaves are more serrated

Does anyone know what this is, growing wild in my lawn? It looks a bit like chickweed but I don't think it is.

Planted wild garlic/Ramson bulbs today - scattered through all the different areas of various degrees of shade in the garden in the hopes that they find one they can be happy in. Fingers crossed they establish *somewhere*.

Also found my first bee of the year, happily foraging around the lungwort.

Things are waking up in the garden. Found this lovely violet in the lawn

It’s only sarcasm if it comes from a valley in the Sar region of France.

Everything else is snarkeling whine.

I had to tear out by hand a pyrocantha bush which was also growing on top of the weed suppressant membrane. Now I need to go back and clear a space where I can replant it in actual soil.

On the positive side, my apricot tree is blooming! ,

OMG my back! So, I am now pulling ivy out of the ground down the side passage, because there's a lot of good planting space down there, and it turns out that the 50cm deep tangled mass of ivy roots covering the ground is growing ON TOP OF (and through) a layer of weed suppressant membrane.

I only went out to plant a hazelnut tree and now my spine aches. Who needs pilates or weightlifting? When this passage is fully plantable again, my core strength is going to be off the charts. ,

Officially the beginning of growing season for me...
1. Malabar spinach seedlings from seed i ... 'borrowed' from a botanical garden
2. Tomato seedlings (4 different lines) for grafting onto potato rootstock (trying to make a pomato)
3. Klip dagga mutant that has leaves in triples, not pairs (forgot how the mutation is called), i will be trying to preserve the genetics

Cauliflower is next...
