On Sunday Much Beloved headed to Manchester to go to footie and I had the day to myself - so I set to on the back garden - digging over the soil to try to make it less compacted, weeded - an ongoing battle with hairy bittercress !! - and then I had bought sacks of organic compost from the local council recycling tip which I used as a mulch.
After 3 hours of all this it was a treat to get out of the cold in my potting shed to sow some seeds - my new gloves have been a godsend in keeping my hands warm & dry these past couple of weeks ! And my new pink wellibobs have been doing the trick keeping my feet cosy too !
I have over-wintered some mitzuna, turnips and spinach quite successfully in the Veg-Trug - and on the lower right hand side you can see the lengths I have had to go to in my anti-feline campaign on my veggie bed !!
I have used rings to secure the junk journal for the moment so it doesn't matter if it gets plump with pages !
And I journaled a few pages ready to stick in pictures from this month's activities ...
Lynda & her husband came over for supper and a film on Saturday - and we swapped the tags for our Art Tag swap - the challenge this month was stencils and recycling - so my tags were themed for March and featured flowers from tissue paper which was wrapped around some new shoes, the strip on the tag from a carrier bag & the string from clothes tags !
And I got to use some new Paperartsy stamps too !
I love the quote " to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow !
Have a great crafty week !
