Sneaking ahead for 2015

 Hurrah it's nearly Christmas.  And a new exciting year is around the corner for the Random family. We're planning to hit the garden hard the moment Christmas is finished and prepare for the new growing season.  I want to get as much as possible set up by the time Baby arrives so I only have to worry about picking and watering while I'm recovering.
 We have sneaked in a little head start though with some celery. Clever hubby picked some up reduced to pennies a few days ago. All he needs is a windowsill and a jam jar so rather than wasting a chance to have homegrown celery this summer, he'll be joining us from his windowsill.
 Perhaps he'll inspire my hyacinth to get a move on. I don't think it'll be out for Christmas somehow,  but maybe New year will start with a pretty floral display if I'm lucky.

  1. Hi Sarah,
    I hope you are keeping well and not getting too stressed about Christmas! I did not realise that you could regrow celery from the 'stump' but will definitely give this a go. We are back in Hampshire mid January so hopefully will be able to have bit of catch-up. Have you thought about planting garlic around now as I know that can be planted in the winter months (maybe January though)? Take care and have a fabulous Christmas. X
