Thankyou God for rain!

13/7/19

Not much achieved today, in the garden at least. I got up early to water, left for work and then went to the rehearsal and concert. All went well, but now completely exhausted, no watering tonight!

14/7/19

It rained last night, God took pity on us! and I only had to water the polytunnel - BRILLIANT! Also, the concert we should have been doing today, our music school extravaganza, has been cancelled due to a burst pipe in the hall and dangerous electrics. I went to church ( and thanked God for alleviating our stresses). I can't believe I have an unexpected day to work outside, and despite being extremely tired, I set to work clearing the 'early pea' bed ( which has now finished) in order to plant the leeks which are desperate to go out. The bed is not in 'good heart' so I soak it and add compost. I leave an edging of calendula, clearing the central area and plant 2 trays of leeks into hollows - this is to help them collect water. Aideen practises, then joins me to continue weeding the beans which are in the bed next door. She also does some dead heading - this is an endless job! Patrick continues digging in his mushroom house assisted by Meave, Diane and briefly Mary. I move on to dig up some garlic to make more room for leeks.
