It rains today, thats very good for the plants!:)
I borrowed a car to buy a 50 meter long watertube on weels and a grass-trimmer. Now it´s raining so we wont need to water the plot for a couple of days, but still I think it´s good to have the equipment ready when we need it, cause we defenitly will!;)
I spoke to the landlord and got permission to store the watertube in the landryhouse. I also knocked on Moyses door and he was kind to keep the trimmer and the fuel can in his house.
The sprouts looks fine and I had to cull a few that was comming to close to each other.
Today Mahtab from Iran, sent me a mejl and told me that she also wanted to help out watering the plot!:) It´s very good news, since she planted almost all the seedbombs last wednesday!
One week since we planted the seedbombs and they have really exploded! I had no idea that the birdsfood – sunflower seeds- i bought this winter was so fertile!! I Had to thin out, cull very many sprouts, just leaving two or three shoots in each hole. Dawn helped me with this task.
