Now Dan has embraced gardening he is full of good ideas, yesterday he suggested we get a better seed storing box as the one I've been using is getting a bit cramped. I agreed with him but didn't want to spend any money on a proper one so we had a hunt around the house. Dan found a plastic box with a lid in the garage and I made a few inserts in an attempt to organise the seeds.
I chopped up falafel mix, pastry and yeast boxes to make seed holders and put them in the box. It gets no more exciting than that. The box was also big enough to hold the two pepper pots I bought for 40p from Wilko on Saturday.
Seemed sensible to keep my pencil and plant markers in there too. I could do with another couple of inserts, but this is a good start.
There's still a lot of cutting back to be done in the back garden, Father is going to come up next month to help me with it, I have done enough to help a few more plants to show their faces. I tied a straggly bit of rose to a cane the other week, assuming it was another yellow one, on Friday I learned it's pink.
Sadly, the rain has damaged all the petals this morning, so I'm glad I saw it before that. The second new plant is purple, and I have no idea what it is, but I love the colour and the papery texture.
I'm really enjoying the small victories and continuing to ignore the big picture!
