If you have read my previous garden updates (in February and March) you know that I am very much a beginner when it comes to gardening. I am just googling and asking my mum and trying things out! We will see how it goes.
The weather was rather rainy during April so I didn’t spend huge amounts of time outside but did get a few things done!
An update on our seedlings
This month the first seedings made it into the garden! My mum helped me weed and prepare the beds and I planted six lettuce plants outside. The lettuce is called “May King” so potentially we can eat some of it next month!
Also, it was time to pinch the celery seeds and re-pot them.
The tomatoes, peppers and chilis are also doing really well!
Yesterday I also planted a lot more seeds. As it is warm enough now I could directly sow them into the ground. I sorted them by how much fertilising they need and put the ones near each other that needed similar amounts of care. We shall see!
I planted two types of carrots, dill, cucumber, leek, parsley, courgette, basil, sprouts, lettuce, chives, two types of peas and beetroot. Quite a lot! All the seeds were from my advent calendar.
I have a few more that need to go in a bit later. Also, I am planning on getting some strawberry plants, as they are my absolute favourite.
Other garden things
Yesterday I also cut back some wilted tulips and daffodils. I am not sure if I did it correctly but we’ll see!
I have also just really appreciated having a garden! There are lots of lovely flowers coming through that previous tenants put in.
And SJ loves the little sandpit we have, drawing with chalk or being on the swing.
I am excited to spend much more time outside as the weather gets warmer!
