Back to nature

It’s been fabulous weather this weekend, and I’ve spent most of it in the garden, whether weeding or planting.  I have (with some trepidation at the forecast) planted my tomato plant in the hope that the cold snap due mid week won’t kill it, I’ve done some more seed propagation, planning to grow kale, zucchini, peppers, basil and coriander, I’ve weeded dandelions for africa, and finally cleared the weed-forest around the roses at my bedroom window.   313 more words
