I thought I could plant some vegetables amongst the existing plans if I just gave them a slight prune. After sitting back and looking at this result I decided it still wasn't enough so out came the plants. I was able to throw the rooted part of the plant into my bin for collection and all of the clippings got run over by the mower. This gave me a wheelbarrow full of mulch that got spread on the garden along the driveway, reducing our amount of waste! It did take me a good 20 minutes of continuously going over the clippings with the mower before I was happy.
Then it was off to my local nursery for some seedlings. I wanted to plant, zucchini, cabbage, lettuce and some beans or peas. I managed to pick up all of these and then bought them home for planting. I also wanted to put in some English spinach, bok choy and beetroot - I had seed for these, therefore making it cheaper.

I also have some potatoes that are sprouting so I am going to have at planting them. I have done this once before and forgot about them but when I dug over the garden I was given a nice surprise. I have nothing to loose so might as well try it!
As mentioned in my last post I thought I would show some pictures of some bags I have been making.
These are both my designs that I have adapted each time I have made them.

The wet weather over the weekend might mean more time in the sewing room and making more bags!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend where ever you are.
