I now have all the Six on Saturday source material I need for the next thirteen years. So far. I like to plan ahead you see. Without further ado, let’s away.
1: Winter-Spring Bedding
I’ve got to get round to planting this lot quickly now. There’s 600 of them. Hey another two years’ worth of sixes.
2: A Little Project
This little beastie will be getting exercised over the weekend (hard at it by the time you read this). New driveway and a patio area beside Ed 3.
3: Gladiolus callianthus
Used to be Acidanthera murielae. Not sure which name I prefer. Can’t remember planting them either. I think they hitch-hiked in a pack of other Gladiolus bulbs.
If the frosts continue to hold off, I may have rose blooms for some time yet. ‘Poetry in Motion’ is currently making an effort with a fair number of buds in reserve.
Got this lot as a bargain buy. Something else I need to get in the ground quickly.
6 – 4075: Bits
Not including the boxes or pallets, wraps or straps. Took me five hours to unload the two pallets and organise everything. I have not yet counted the brackets and screws which will probably be sufficient for a few months more of sixes. Come to think of it, I haven’t counted the Haribo. Nor the individual bits inside 50 bags of alpine grit that turned up this week.
I may be gone a while, what with all the counting I have to do. While I concentrate on that, why not pass some time looking at the other sixes which you will find neatly indexed over at the blog of the seed-sowing maniac who goes by the alias “Mr Propagator”. Maybe, one day, Granny will post a photo of him prancing around tending his seedlings in a multi-coloured leotard.
