Guess what! It rained today. How unusual, it started with heavy rain and by mid afternoon it was spitty rain. I am think I might have to start making up more words to describe the rain as I've seen all types all of the time over the last month.
As I have to work all day tomorrow, I decided I'd better do a little gardening today.
It's my dad's birthday tomorrow and my mum's on Wednesday so I started the day off with a visit to wish them well. Morning tea turned into lunch and I had an enjoyable catch up with them. We left about mid afternoon and made a quick stop at the warehouse for some seedlings and seeds.
I have decided to plant a lot of my vegetables from seedlings and not grow my own this year. But I have to confess I baulk at buying carrots and corn in punnets. To me these are definitely best grown directly in the garden. I bought radish, beetroot and spring onion seeds, marigold, mini cauliflower, capsicum (even though it's a bit early), two lots of lettuce and red onions in seedling form.
