I have been out of action today, and it has been pouring down with rain – and still is – I haven’t missed much have I?
The girls laid three eggs again and the heaviest was 77grms and they were all in the 70’s grms. I took my physio a couple of slices of both of the cakes I made and she was delighted. She is so petite and slim, I thought that she might not eat cake – but she loves cakes, but rarely cooks them, as she is single.
In hindsight I think that I should have given them or not after my treatment as it was the most painful yet! In her defence she did say that my muscles had seized up, for some reason. I asked her what sort of thing could have caused that – and she said lifting heavy things. You wouldn’t have thought that lifting things would effect your neck would you? I owned up to digging up the row of parsnips – but not to the clearing out the chicken pen!
Still – are forecast lots of rain, so indoor jobs will be the order of the day for this week.
The Woodland border.
Talking of clearing out the chicken run – here are some photos that I took of the wood chips from there which I have now used as mulch.
This is another bed which was mulched a week ago and nothing was showing then - now look at the new beginnings. Wait until you see it in early summer it is a picture.
The vegetable seeds sowed in the little propagators on the windowsill have started to grow already.
I'll take some photos tomorrow, and post those. It won't be until the afternoon though - I have to pop into Norwich for a hospital visit.
Sorry its a bit short today.
