Last year I grew tomatoes, carrots, potatoes and baby sweetcorn plus a few others, not everything was perfect but it was good fun and caused great excitement (from me ) when I picked the first tomatoes of the year.
I have lost a few flowers because of the weather, but its a good excuse for a trip to the garden centre. I went to Hampton Court Flower Show last year. We hardly stopped all day and I still don't know how we managed to carry everything to the car.If you get the chance to go its worth the visit.
but I wouldn't want to get them dirty.
The gloves I use are lab gloves the palms are acid and waterproof they don't look very good but last for ages.
I do like to wear a hat in the summer then I can stay out longer, I only come inside when the dog drags its dish around the kitchen floor in the hope of food, or the light has gone.
sadly mine are starting to fade.
I really love vintage seed packets and they make great presents if you put them in a nice basket with some other goodies. I made a friend a collection of lavender, with seeds collected from from my garden.
There are lots of web sites where you can download seed packets, you could use them to collect your own seeds, and its much nicer than a paper bag. I will have a go at making a seed box and post the results.( now I have to make it) :)
Well that's a few of the things I like what about you do you have any day dreams ? I have tried to keep mine possible you don't have to :) Hope you all enjoyed your Easter let the gardening begin.
