Germinated peas: lots
Eggs: 4 today; total of 10 since they began laying on Saturday.
Freesias in bloom: more every day
Irises nearly in bloom: 2.
Mouse traps laid tonight: 2
Slugs fed to the lions/chooks: more than 6
Leeks getting fat enough to make a decent soup: 2
Plans for the garden: many
State of the soil: saturated, every square centimetre is the very definition of bog.
biggest garden job and most urgent: to create a cover for the poultry palace and to stake the palace into the ground so that the cover doesn't just become a sail for the whole thing to take off. We get pretty big winds here.
