Garden and dogs

My radishes are pretty much ready to eat!  That was quick.  Planted some red cabbage, some more radishes, some lettuce and some basil, all in the greenhouse.  I removed nettles from the new raspberry rows, and a lot of grass around the hardy geraniums.   My compost heap isn't rotting down as fast as I would like: I think it's too dry.  If it were nearer the house I'd water it, but as it is, I'm hoping for rain.  This dry spring is fabulous but we really could do with a decent soak now, everything is so dry though it's only just April.

Saffy is getting on much better with the cats today, possibly aided by two lengthy walks.  She is now asleep on my foot, but has been off the lead around the house for most of the day with no problems.   We have someone interested in adopting her already, but the family is in Portsmouth, which may be a bit too far.

Things seem to be doing well in the garden this year - much better than this time last year. I guess it must be the dry.

It occurs to me that the singular lack of Giant Slug Armies with Supporting Cohorts of Snails is probably related to the dry. OK, I revise my call for rain!

Oh good point. We've seen far less of Giant Mega Slugs and their numerous offspring this year.

I covet Sally - would that we were in a position to have a dog! :)

Pity, she'd make a lovely family dog and I'm sure she'd love Polly: she's a big one for hugs!

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
