National Vegetable Society
Attended the meeting of the NVS last night. Being secretary, it’s expected. Our web site is here I do get a little down about how dismissive they are towards the web. After all, the internet is mainstream now.
We had a talk on chrysanthemums, which I thought would be really boring as well as not much to do with vegetables, but it was actually quite fascinating.
The sheer range of types and sizes was a revelation and I was surprised to find out how easy to propagate from cuttings they are. I hadn”t realised how big they grow either, apparently eight of ten feet high is not unusual with some cultivars.
Lull before the storm
It?s been a little quiet as far as the plot is concerned. Apart from dropping down to pick a few leeks, I?ve not done anything. The potatoes are happily chitting in the front bedroom and I?ve a few more onion seedlings to move on but that?s about it. It?s nearly time to start sowing a few more things but not quite yet.
The greenhouse on the plot needs building as well. I?m a terrible prevaricator when it comes to jobs I don?t want to do, though. I know there is going to be a lot of cursing when I do get around to it.
The other thing that has kept me off the plot is a lot of work on – it would be nice if it paid better, but something beats nothing most days.
Finally, my little cat may have cancer in her leg. She?s going in for a biopsy and x-rays tomorrow, Fingers crossed that the vet?s fears are misplaced.
