    Went to plant some lavender seeds today. Three years ago I raised 120 seedlings from one packet. Today, same supplier and same price, there were barely 30 seeds in the packet. Hows yhat for inflation.

    Thanks for reminding me, time to get some seeds.
    I was eating some carrots that were still growing.

    Sad to say no vegetables in the garden this year (apart from me). So much to do we do not have the time. Add to that the fact that everything seems to be doing so badly this year plus we will be away for a while in the Summer we are concentrating on trying to get the garden straight again.

    trying to get the garden straight again.
    You can come and do mine when you finish, exercise could do you good
    Cheers MIKE.

    My idea of gardening these days Mike concerns a bottle of wine, and pointing at the things that need doing.

    I turned my veg garden into grass 5 years ago too labour intensive, still have a green house for Tomatoes etc.

    There is nothing like fresh fruit and veg from your own garden. Truly organic, but too much work this year. I am pushing on with my plans for a beehive and then I can watch them being busy.
