The List Mistress
The garden club plant sale looms ahead this weekend and I am losing the plot. Back in January when I wrote this post it seemed a comfortably long time off. So now that it is a couple of days before the event and I wish it was over:) I have lists everywhere - lists of what plants to take to the plant sale, what I still need to do before the day as well as what to take with me on the day. It is fortunate perhaps that I have fewer plants than what I imagined my still relatively new non working life style would give me the chance to propagate. As well as the plant sale lists there seems to be a plethora of other lists - what needs taking to the allotment, what needs bringing back, what still needs sowing and well as what needs attention in the garden. Meanwhile the greenhouse shuffle continues in all its permutations, plants seem to reproduce overnight, I am still searching for whatever decapitated my cucumber and everytime I put my head out of the door there's more of that wet stuff ! I will write more about the plant sale at the weekend when I surface for breath.
