Father's Day update

I want to start off by wishing all the father's out there where ever they are, be it this world or the next, Happy Father's Day.

The Little P's have been quite keen to spoil Mark today with breakfast in bed followed by a trip to the nursery. Not sure if this was for my benefit or Mark's, however all 6 of us had a chance to choose new plants for the garden and plot and hopefully the bunnies will leave them alone!!!

Can't remember if I shared this with you or not but a few weeks ago when we were digging in the flowerbed, Mark's arm suddenly disappeared down a large hole. After a bit of probing we found our 2 female rabbits had dug themselves a burrow and lined it with grass. When it was discovered they proceeded to fill it in and have since started a new burrow at the side of the house. They have moved 2ft of stone to reach the soil, determined little buggers!

Our flowerbed at home is looking very sparse since the bunnies have nibbled everything. (They're now only allowed out when I'm there to watch them!)

Anyway I'm digressing. We now have a boot full of flowers and one week until next plot inspection. In this coming week we have 1 concert, 2 birthdays, a school prom and a hen night for an old friend, not to mention the dance rehearsals and swimming lessons we fit in each week. Busy week coming up, I like a challenge ;)

So what have we been up to this last week? Not as much as I would have liked.

Our carrots started in trays are in. We have put more in trays to try to stagger growth rates.

We had our first ripe strawberry and it was a good size, almost as big as Bob's hand :)

Our first batch of ripe strawberries. Some aren't quite ripe with the tip still a little pale but I know if left they would be eaten by slugs. A few hours in the window will sort them.

We have got the next lot of peas transplanted and have used twigs to help support them.

We have had our second batch of garlic, Carcassonne variety we picked up on our travels to the Isle Of Wight.

Will update the blog in between birthdays etc. Thanks for reading. :)
