Spending and a bit more digging

I noticed some slate labels on crooks reduced in Sainsburys to £2.10 a pair, but printed on the labels was ‘Grown in the UK’ and I was really after blank slate labels for my veg beds but I figured it’d be cheaper to buy them and just write over the pre printed text than buying blank labels elsewhere. When I got to the till they scanned through at 70p so I’m quite chuffed with that. 

The reverse side of the slate has ‘Garden Trading’ printed on which will probably be better for writing over. 

Not much has progressed in the garden as we’re also doing up the house so due the rubbish weather I’ve mainly been working inside. My husband bought me a Bee Balm plant which I’ve planted into the new flower bed, I’m still harvesting peas and when the weather allows I’m getting some digging done in the veg beds – two down, three to go. 

Yesterday we popped into Dobbies on the way past and my eagle eyes spotted a 50% off sign above their seed collections so I purchased

  • Brussel Sprouts Bedford
  • Leek Musselburgh 
  • Nasturtium Ladybird Mix
  • Pea Hurst Greenshaft
  • Sweet Pea Prince of Orange
  • Sweet Pea Spencer Special Mix

I also saw on Gardeners World that Monty Don was sowing some turnips so I may sow a few today and see how they get on.
