A couple of months ago I was thinking about what I should do with my garden. I had a number of grand schemes but my darling husband said that I had to prove I was a responsible with the little bit of garden I had before he would 'allow' me to become a kiwi version of Percy Thrower.
Not too ambitious
So I got out in the garden yesterday because it was such a beautiful day, and had a good old tidy up. I've planted some bedding plants, lettuce and parsley. And in the next couple of weeks I'm going to plant some potatoes, tomatoes and rhubarb. That should be enough to keep me out of mischief.
The fun thing about yesterday's gardening session was that the tools I used were given to me (by way of gift vouchers) by various women and families I have looked after over the years as a midwife. So I had a lovely afternoon communing with nature and reflecting on life as a midwife.
Now I have to concentrate on keeping the slugs and weeds at bay. Any tips on how I can protect the plants from slugs without harming my local hedgehogs?
