Looking back at my 2011 New Year’s Resolutions post, I was pleased to see that I had accomplished some of my ‘resolutions’ for last year, although lack of time and job hunting made sure that I never had the time to get round to doing all of them.
I know that I’m a little late to the party with this, but after seeing this on other people’s blogs, I thought it would be good for me to share my allotment based resolutions for the year, and also for me to look back in a year’s time to see how many have been achieved.
Falling autumn leaves can become a nuisance, especially if you’re constantly raking them off the lawn, dredging the pond or picking up handfuls to prevent them choking up flower beds and borders. But rather than pulling your hair out in irritation and consigning them to your wheelie bin, turn leaves into leaf mulch – a wonderful compost that can be used as mulch or dug into the ground as a soil conditioner.
It did seem that it was a very short weekend, even leaving aside that an hour of my sleep was stolen on Sunday morning!
Saturday was spent potting on the huge amount of seedlings that had sprouted, so the greenhouse is now full. I also got a refill for the greenhouse heater, just in case the predicted snow/sleet that is forecast for later in the week arrives.
