16 days post op……

Feeling really good, minimal pain 🙂 but bored outta my brain !!!!!

Not quiet up to going to the allotment today but did get out into the garden where we are keeping 2 vegetable beds. Just love these no dig beds, turned over the surface to clear any cat poo ”Yuck” then got on with sowing some seeds. We’ve sown 2 rows of carrots, 2 rows of spring onions, 1 row of radish and a row of lettuce. Also planted out some round lettuce seedlings but placed them under bottle top cloches.

Sadly the slugs and snails have had a real banquet on my pea’s and broad beans so i removed the dead and will be replacing them.

1st home-grown leek

Eventually went for it a picked my first home grown leek, which even if i say so myself looks pretty good. Leeks are something we don’t actually eat that often if at all so i don’t think i’ll grow them again due to the amount of time the spend growing.

Still signed off for another 4wks then have to go for check up with gp.

Fingers crossed we are able to get to the allotment in the next week or two, although i’ll only be supervising we do have some seedlings that really could do with being planted out.
