Garden day. Rain, sun, rain, sun. I started with scrubbing the concrete where the wormery used to be and the bike rack now is, and ended up weeding and then pruning (hacking at) the jasmine. One of my hands is purple from the berries, but there's less of the jasmine than there used to be. Must work out how to reduce it even further. The milkman delivered a sack of peat-free compost so I planted the rest of the potatoes and some carrots. I have no idea why the easiest way for me to get peat-free compost is from the milkman.

This summer the garden should be pretty usable. And we will have at least *some* food we grew ourselves. I really, really want to get some beans to grow this year, though. They are such a rewarding crop.

And I want the Herb Robert to stop being such a feeble wimp and start standing up to the bigger plants. I *like* Herb Robert. Maybe I'll have to dig up all the blinking lungwort or whatever they are. They really are taking over.

I used to have a plague of the plant that comes up when I google for Herb Robert! It particularly liked it under the bay tree and wherever I tried to make sweet peas grow.

I want https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Herb-Robert_800.jpg but seem to only get tons of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lungwort-oliv.jpg

Under the bay tree is mostly bluebells.
