last sunday was the hottest day in britain so far this year. i think that provided some motivation to begin sorting out our garden, which we hadn't really touched since moving in
back in november. so i mowed the lawn (for what must have been the first time since the 80's), hung up a washing line, moved some rocks around and, after a trip to the garden centre, planted some seeds. it's all a bit of an experiment as we've no idea what we're doing and we almost always kill anything plantlike inside the house, but what the hell. so we bought our propagater and compost, stuck a few seeds in, doused them in water and stuck them in the sun. hopefully in a few months we'll be having home grown chilis, basil, thai basil, mint, rosemary and corriander. that would make for an interesting meal.
