greenhouseWe’re almost there with the vegetable garden as this morning we got around to planting the Jet Set onion sets in the bed between the shed and the greenhouse. We spread an old piece of garden fleece over them because we always get a few pulled up by the birds. We push them back in again but until the sets start sprouting we have to take a guess as to whereabouts they came out so we end up with a few gaps and a few being overcrowded.

First Swallow

swallowsIt felt like the start of summer today as we looked out and saw our first swallows, a pair of them, perched on the telephone wires. They stayed there for more than two hours. I’m sorry that I haven’t got a suitable barn or outbuilding for them to nest in.

  1. I was going to say “Two swallows don’t make a summer”, but when I looked it up, it was “One swallow does not make a summer” Aristotle – so that scuppered that idea for a witty post!

    1. I’m afraid that with global warming and inflation we’ll have to update Aristotle’s version.
