THANKS TO RITA AND JIM FOR HELPING ME EMPTY HEAVY CONTAINERS – FIRST WEEK IN APRIL 2011

I am blessed with some great friends like Rita and Jim from the Donabate Transition Town Group a few miles down the road. Knowing the chaotic turn of events in my life post a traumatic General Election, Rita and Jim offered to give me a hand in the garden last Saturday.

Before that the closing down of offices and the cluttering of the house with files and boxes of office contents all requiring careful treatment and re-filing, there has been little time to really begin the gardening year.

Rita and Jim arrived, thanks to a lift from Zoe, to the rescue. With their help, the old bags and boxes of soil in which grew potatoes, tomatoes and pumpkins last year were emptied and made ready for the coming growing season. Weeding was done and mature compost was spread as a mulch on the cleared growing plots.

I am now fired up to get potatoes planted, seeds sown and the pea and bean wigwam supports erected. However before that I am glad to take up an invitiation to take part in a day of workshops at Wexford Organic Centre at Cushinstown billed as ‘Trevor’s Kitchen Garden on Tour 2011’. I’ll give a full report when I get back home.

    • Fáilte romhaibh, Rita agus Jim, a Chairde,

      The next big thing for the garden will be the grand opening of the generous Fingal Greens’ greenhouse, for which I was measuring up this morning! Other than that I am getting on with planting, when I’m not inside setting up the home office. Always glad to see you either here or out and about.

      Thanks again,
      Trevor
