Down at the Garden
Following the planting by the moon calendar sowing has been quite hectic - the cats were particularly happy when propagating light! Alison found one of them sleeping quite happily alongside the germinated tomatoes. Today is a "root" day so the season's beetroots have been sown.
Great news for the residents of Coigach - we have a fantastic crop of purple-sprouting broccoli! The severe frosts of the winter has resulted in many supermarkets supplies having either failed or been reduced drastically.
I am now spending increasing amounts of time in the "mail order department" - our shipping container - as our customers, old and new, are getting ready for growing in 2011.
On a totally different subject, on the 10th March there is to be a special preview of Eagle - the film starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell - which was has part of the storyline filmed here in Coigach. Tickets for the screening are by application only for those who were extras or involved in some way. (Hopefully I have been successful).
