Chooeey, I'm Back! x

Like a little baby hedgehog I've finally come out of hibernation from the winter. Unlike a hedgehog though, I've awoken to a very unsightly veggie plot that is in desperate need of some TLC!
As I explained at the very start of this ere blog, I am very much an amateur at this whole 'grow your own' business and can't even begin to tell you how much pleasure I got out of it over thew summer months. However, as soon as the cold, damp, and miserable wet weather started to creep back in, I felt my self quickly taking several quick steps back inside the house to my lovely warm nest, far away from all things squelchy! I'll be honest, I didn't really have a clue what to do over winter. Our neighbours had suggested certain winter crops which would be ideal, but unfortunately I'd left it all a little too late to do anything about. Never fear though. I have taken this knowledge and will not be making the same mistakes again, (hopefully!).

So anyway, I finally plucked up the courage to take a peek at my plot to asses what the heck's going on over there. Apart from a few weeds here and there it's not actually looking too bad.  One things for sure though, my mini greenhouse has taken a proper battering in the nasty weather we've been having...nothing that can't be fixed though I'm sure. Oh, and I may be needing to do a swift operation on Kyle, (the scarecrow...named by Nicole, not me) as he is looking slightly worse for wear and a little bedraggled to say the least!

Once I finally get round to tarting the whole area up a little I'll be back on form to let you know about my progress.

Oh, and just so you know, I hold my husband ENTIRELY responsible for the neglect of the patch. Because he went to do Dancing on Ice, I ended up spending all my free time down at the ice rink. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! x
