Today was a lovely Spring day with lots of sunshine. In the afternoon I had time to work in the vegetable garden, garden and greenhouse.
In the garden I did a bit of pruning and Maine Coon Vita (blue, cream and white) was supervising the whole operation. Every branch I took off was checked to see if I had done it right. It's nice to have a little helper like that when you're gardening.
After the pruning I got my vegetable seeds from my nifty box and started sowing them in my greenhouse. It was nice and cosy in there because it was such a sunny day. It felt almost like summer in my greenhouse, so it was a pleasure to work in there.
I've sown tomatoes, courgettes, red hot peppers, peppers, pumpkins, spinach, lettuce, radishes and rocket today. Some of it in pots, the rest in my cold frames.
Last week I had sown broad beans and sweet peas, after which I had put the pots in a cold frame. Today some of the seedlings were poking their heads through the soil. Result!
And while I was working in the garden Dolly and Vita were following me around.
Merlijntje and Kadootje also kept an eye on me from their windowsill. And of course, just a I took the picture, Kadootje decided to look the other way. Cats!
It was such a lovely day today, hopefully more will follow.
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
