I'm still here

Hello everyone. I'm still here, just got carried away with things and neglected my blog a little too long. 

Spring has most definitely sprung where I am. In the pattern of the last few years it seems like April showers don't exist any more as we've had a lot of sunshine so far. I've already been wearing my sun cream as I'm pretty much a vampire and I go crispy surprisingly fast. The dogs overheat quickly too, and I'm able to get some lovely dopey photos of them in the sun:

This is a photo of the lawn:

It looks a lot more like a desert at the moment. The dogs have killed most of the grass and it's been so dry it's all cracked. Sam is quite happy with it now, as he absolutely hates mowing, but I'm thinking of sowing some grass seeds and trying to keep the dogs (and the birds!) off it for a while.

I've been busy making wedding plans so I'm behind on planting this year. I've planted some seeds today, tomatoes, broad beans, peas, mixed salad, basil, and beetroot. I need to get some potatoes ready too. I don't know how many will germinate as the seeds are all pretty old now, but I'd rather use them up before I buy new ones.

What have you got growing at the moment?


  1. Your dogs are very cute, I especially like the photo of Jess, she looks like she's smiling!

    We're growing some of the same as you - peas, broad beans, potatoes, tomatoes, loads of herbs, beetroot, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, spring onions, onions, courgette and rhubarb!

  2. For a minute there I thought you'd managed to grow your own kestral - which would be very impressive!

    Just planted some courgette seeds but concentrating on the soft fruit and herbs mostly this year.

  3. Haha, no, he was relegated to the greenhouse as my mum didn't like him. So he sits and guards my seeds instead. :)
