My snake Mrs Wigglesworth has just returned home from a socializing holiday and she looks great. :D She was sitting right on top of her mothers tank and she met one of her brothers so not only was it a socializing with humans holiday it was a socializing with other snakes holiday too. She got her very first triple pinkie meal which she seems to have enjoyed, and I even think she's noticeably grown in just three weeks. Thanks for looking after her Maz you did a great job.

I've had to up the watering of my plants recently, it took four trips to the water tap and eight watering cans to get all of my plants enough water today. They're all getting big now and will soon be ready to go to their new homes. Every inch of my tables are filled with green and it looks amazing.

I had my new delivery of plant pots this morning so I can now restart potting up my plants. I totally ran out of my 7 inch pots so I was unable for the last three days to get anything else potted on. I've got quite a bit of catching up to do so I'm going off to do that now. That is until the compost or the vermiculite runs out.

Now I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I love growing squash and pumpkins. They are my favorite plant to grow, to look at and to eat. I sowed six seeds quite a while ago which don't seem to want to germinate I've dug up the seeds that look like they're still viable and I've put them in bigger pots as they were only in small cells before. I found some mystery Cucurbit seeds in the bottom of my seed tin that I've sown because I want to know what they are... I'm hoping they're not melon. I've also found an envelope of yet more mystery pumpkin-type seeds which I've sown, again, so that I can find out what sort of squash they are. I have no idea where all of these squash are going, but I'll try to tuck them away in odd corners all about the place.

I spent quite a nice hour in the garden today actually outside of the poly tunnel and I planted all of my Dahlia tubers, some of my lily tubers and a selection of my mystery variety of perennials that I get from Thompson and Morgan. As I want to plant a turks turban squash in the bed too I'll have to leave it at that but Hopefully it should look really nice.

Picture 1: Over the last couple of days My BF, Dad and I emptied out the polytunnel Picture 2: Weeded the ground and covered it over with weed suppressant and a mixture of cardboard and wooden boards. Picture 3: Replaced everything onto new staging that my dad built for me. Picture 4: And created a comfortable potting on environment so that I would be able to work through large amounts of plants without being uncomfortable. Picture 5: These are the violas that I planted last year and now look absolutely stunning. Picture 6: These are tulips that the BF planted in the autumn and I just love them. I love the way the light is hitting them in the last picture.
