I am literally eyeballing the month of March on my calendar and have already planned our garden activities and events through out the summer. Last month I shared a few tips on jobs that may need doing in the garden for the Month of January and with the elements being so unpredictable of late, I really hope you got to a least enjoy a flourish of daffodils or a sprinkling of snowdrops.
February is here already and it is suffice to say that this year has been extremely emotional due to losing my precious Mummy to cancer and our beloved family rabbit was killed by the neighbors dog. So already I am wanting to continue on my Mothers love of gardening but at the same time dearly miss our Jenny every time I set foot into the yard now.
Mums passing is still too raw and at this time I am not ready to write about it but I can however keep positive in remembering all the great memories we made In each others gardens and putting to use the handy tips she passed down to me.
As for Jenny the rabbit, I won’t be getting another rabbit as I know she will never be replaced. Jenny was an amazing bunny who lived in doors with us. My little girl adored her as did we. She was also a very big breed and loved to run wild, burrowing herself out of anything and everything. Our garden is very spacious but the temptation of next doors vegetable patch was too much and Jenny found a way through the fence.
So with out further a do the first project I want to concentrate on this month is my shed! My she shed has many uses for me. I run a business from there, I have a storage space for my camping gear and I have a lovely little potting table. At the moment I am storing my chrysanthemum bulbs from Christmas and have seedlings of wild flowers ready to sew in March. The past few days have been rather stormy and I have only been able to snatch the odd ten minutes here and there in my shed with most of that time boxing up orders. I have some tools and gardening bits that I kept from my mums own potting shed so I am eager to get organised and prepare the shed for the spring.
Here are a list of jobs I will be doing in the month of February.
