So… plan bee… I call it plan bee because when I picked up my seed order last month, it appeared I had the little pollinating marvels on my mind! I’d bought so many flower seed and hardly any veg seeds 🙂 Not that I’m complaining though 🙂 It’s going to be a pretty sight in the summer and I’ll be bee watching to my hearts content! 🙂
We’ll be planting our usual veg for christmas 🙂 sprouts, parsnips, carrots, broccoli, caulis etc. We’re going to try globe artichokes so I can sit and look at the bumbles, honeybees busy collecting pollen!
The little green storage/greenhouse had been battered over the last couple of years by the wind and the rain. We’re replacing it with a fab hive shaped wooden composter. I’m going to use it as a storage bin for plant pots, hosepipe etc and it will be painted in duck egg blue 🙂
Our willow edges are looking a bit tired so I’ll be replacing them around our bug lane, where I’ll have wild flowers coming out of my ears. Herbs and salads I plan to grow at home so I can pick them fresh for my tea 🙂
It’s going to be a good year, I can feel it! I hope we get a lovely warm summer like last year. Spending hot summer evenings watering the plot and enjoying a glass of wine will be great 🙂 Bring it on!
Are you making any major plans this year?
