A happy growing new year

A happy growing year folks, the weather up till now has been not bad i got a few jobs done on the plot i have moved all the drums that i was using to grow my parsnips in they have gone into the polytunnel along with the other drums, i will see how the veg grows in the tunnel doing it this way, i have also started off my first lot of seeds which are two lots of onions white and red they are in our propagator at the moment and i shall be checking the other seeds for sowing as and when they have to be done, most of the plot has been covered with the cardboard which has helped us in keeping the ground clean, last week i got the boarder behind the polytunnel all weeded out this is were i have been growing flowers, while doing this i came across tulip bulbs begining to grow so the growing season will soon be upon us busy times potting up seed sowing and keeping on top of the weeds. the birds will be busy as well and as i was doing the weeding the robin was never far away from me hoping i would unearth some worms for him i put up one of coconut bird feeders for some of the other birds and they are using it so thats good it gives them a helping hand. some other jobs i still need to do are start taking more of the horse manure down for the compost heap so i get a good mixture in it as it is something that makes for a good compost heap.
