Were Did The Weekend Go

The past few days have flow by, the weather hasn't been brilliant but it hasn't stopped us getting on.
Friday I shifted the delivery of 2 tons of top soil and filled some of the raised beds
It was a lovely sunny day so I made the most of it, the broad beans had all germinated 
21 of the 22 we saved from last year were viable they are now out in the raised bed.
I also sowed some Telegraph Peas I like there they are an Heirloom variety and grow 8ft tall, proper old fashioned peas as I remember them, I cant be doing with those scruffy peas that only only grow a feet tall, for what you get off them it hardly seems worth the effort of growing  them.
I did some more sowing in the greenhouse, sweetcorn and stevia and got my oca tubers into pots.
I did make these scones as well after getting the idea from Pam over on New Life In Wales no waste no fuss and they taste just like scones.
Yesterday we got the last of the boxes into the attic yippee :-)
I need to get the bedrooms organised this week as we have family arriving on Thursday, I am so looking forward to my daughter and granddaughters coming for Easter.
I also got some sorting out of the ex shop stock done Martin brought another load down for me, we popped down to the fruit and veg suppliers.
Today I have spent the day baking bread, and sorting out in the cabin, Martin has been logging all day and he has put together the Asparagus bed for me, they should be due to arrive any day now.
A lot of the seedlings are coming up in the greenhouse and space is becoming tight, I keep shuffling things around or moving them into the small poly tunnel.
There was something else I did today for the first time but I will post about it on My Monday Make tomorrow.
I hope you all remembered to moved the clocks forward, I hate doing it, it throws all the animals routines out as well as mine.

  1. I prefer putting the clocks forward rather than back any day! and I'm still wondering how you fit so much into your days. I've decided you must be much younger than me! :-)

  4. That top soil looks amazing! I'd love a few loads of that! If you've got your sweetcorn already in then I'll need to think about doing the same thing! Have you put your squashes in yet?

  6. I didn't know you could germinate broad beans like that. Did you soak them? How do you encourage them to sprout. Mine have done nothing in the ground do far :0(

    1. I lay them on damp kitchen paper and lay some more on top and just kept them damp it took about 5-7 days for germination
