|Last of the cake.|
The seed catalogues have started to arrive, it's that time again to start planning and to order the seed potatoes. Unfortunately here we don't get a very good selection of potatoes, they are mostly very dull and floury varieties which the Irish like. You will often see potatoes in the shops described as balls of flour, to me a ball of flour is a dumpling.
Very little is getting done in the garden, it's just too wet. but the apple trees have now been pruned and when I can get out there I will do the currant bushes. Simon has also built a fruit cage to cover all the fruit bushes, we lost most of last years gooseberries to the birds last year, hopefully this will stop them. It's around thirty feet long by twelve feet wide. The basket willow has also been cut, now I will have to come up with a use for it.
