Garden Pains

At last we've had some quite nice weather, so I've spent the last few afternoons in the garden planting seeds, but am now suffering. I don't know if there's such a thing as gardeners shoulder, but if there is then thats what I've got, majorly ouch!

But the good side is that I've planted loads already, rhubarb and peas in the ground, spring onions and carrots in big pots and cucumber and pumpkins in the little greenhouse, fingers crossed that they all survive. This will be my third attempt at cucumbers, first year what must have been an army of snails ate them all overnight and last year they produced no cucumbers, I'm probably doing something wrong, but not entirely sure what! My best produce last year was definitely my pumpkins, they were massive and took over the garden, but made great pies!

I've got loads more seeds to plant but its supposed to rain for the rest of the week and I have terrible pains so for now it will have to wait.

I wish wish wish I knew how to stop next doors cat from pooing in my garden, its all been dug over ready for planting and the damn cat thinks it should poo in it, I've read lots of suggestions, like zoo poo and chilli seeds but neither is good for me with a small child. Am currently considering high power hose or a spud gun!!!

    I wish I knew how to stop our cats from pooing in the garden! We have radishes, sugar peas, onions, potatoes, lettuce and broccoli planted and the soil turned up in the rest of the beds, all nice and soft and perfect for a kitty dunny.

    I have come to the conclusion that cats just like veg plots :-)
