I Bought Seedlings...

I have been out in the garden this week and finally have a few things in the ground.  The chooks have not escaped for a week or so so I'm thinking they'll be safe.

We bought some punnets of seedlings yesterday as a quickstart and they will be planted this morning and I have put some more seeds in as well.  If I can keep the chooks away they should be OK.

I keep saying to Hubby that I need a proper propagating area setup but really that is a want and I am using it as an excuse, whinging that because I haven't got the *perfect spot* it's all hit and miss with the seeds. 
I need to stop making excuses and just get things done regardless of whether things are *perfect* or not.  I have plenty of space to grow seeds and anything else I want.  I just need to do it instead of reading about other people doing it and whinging that they have it better than me blah, blah, blah.

So this morning I will plant out 4 punnets of stuff, get some more seeds in and this out some garlic that has come up in a half 44 along the driveway.

Better be off or it will be coffee time and nothing will get done and I will be whinging again....


  1. Yes, I am full of excuses, but since the doctor confirmed I do need knee surgery, may have a torn rotator cuff, and do have several herniated discs, maybe my whining is Still, I must get it done. If only I did not have to bend....or stand....just garden by proxy I suppose...LOL. Or, I can live/garden vicariously through bloggers like you. Keep up the good work.

  2. Go for it Barb. My garden isn't perfect, the plants have to fend for themselves if I am not here. I've got dandelions all over the place, it's a never ending chore to get rid of them.

  3. Hi Linda. It a damn nuisance isn't it, not being able to do all we want to. Whine all you want, I know you'll be doing what you can.

    Ilona, nice to see you visiting me.
