Today I sowed two pages worth of my notebook, or rather two pages of one of my notebooks.
I’m a multi-notebook kind of girl – different coloured covers, different sizes, mostly squared, each with an individual purpose. A small notebook in my bag for quick scribbles of the personal kind – pretty random it must be said; a large book for work bits – meetings that sort of thing; then there is the notebook on my desk which has recipes or ideas for the blog, or titles of books I want to read, a reminder about an article I’ve read and want to go back to, you name it. And finally I have a small notebook for the allotment. I try and keep a record of what I sowed and when, and more importantly where (!) the blog fills in the photo record and the chat about what worked and didn’t.
Can you have too many notebooks, or rather have I got too many notebooks?
How can I keep track of all these notes, and where will they end up I wonder?
It’s mid April, I better get a move on, it’s warming up and stuff needs to be stuffed. Time to start sowing the squash – from the big Winter Squash for storing, to Summer Squash for sautéing, courgettes for salads, cucumbers for freshness and cornichon for pickling. A Squash for every occasion!
And of course I couldn’t help but pick up a few packets of seeds when in France recently – it would have been rude not to; a few favourites and a new one to try – Pattison Croblan a white Pattypan for the Promenade.
Happy note scribbling and sowing my friends!
