It's wet enough to bog a duck
I bought a punnet of Red Mignonette lettuce to start the ball rolling again and cheer myself up a little. Nothing fancy for the soil prep. I'd tipped a bag of cow manure over a patch that had grown Beetroot so I added some blood and bone and planted them.
With a forecast of over a 100mm of rain over the next two or three days I can hardly go wrong.
Plans to plant carrots, beetroot, cabbage and maybe some early peas and late beans.
That's it for another week. I have Tuesday to myself as well but it's sounding like it will be to boggy and wet to do any gardening.
As my dad would have said, 'It'd bog a duck in gumboots.'
