JUST THE ONE!

Now I'm sure you all remember my vow that I made last Friday ......not to keep taking photos of every little plant that starts to nudge itself upwards into the air.............

put that camera away!well I'm finding it quite hard to stick to it so I've decided I'm allowed to print just ONE photo of newly emerging shoots. That said; here's today's photo.



Last week I noticed on Scarecrow's blog a plant called Strawberry Spinach. It was a new plant to me and I really fancied trying to grow it.....(I will find space somehow!)...I did a search and found a company that sold seed....the packet arrived yesterday so I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Libby of Woodlands World had sent me some Rincinus seed a little while ago and as she also seemed interested in Scarecrow's plant I've sent her some of the seed through the post. Both the leaves and fruit are edible so it's a good plant to grow for people with limited space. While I was looking for plant labels (have run out of lolly sticks) I came across a packet of very old Sweet Pea seeds. I'm going to see if these will germinate as they are a variety with no tendrils, which will be handy in hanging baskets.Speaking of Libby ; she has in fact found fame!; she did a 5 minute talk about blogging on Radio Wiltshire. Sadly I didn't read her blog until it was all over so missed the actual programme. Good for you though Libby; spread the glory of blogging far and wide!
Before I leave you for today....a quick update on the rubbish situation;

IT'S STILL THERE!!!

Ruth I love your only one photo!! Very clever...
Hope you enjoy growing the strawberry spinach. I have one plant about to flower/fruit here and the chooks nearly 'got' it this morning!!
Luckily there were lots of other things around so they left it alone! Phew!
They just demolished a bed of silverbeet instead. argh!
That bed needed clearing out anyway!!
