was given some old gardening books yesterday. I love old things, even Mike is 8 years older than me. I love the history behind them, which is probally why I love my old greenhouse so much. I know who owned it before me & when I leave my front garden I can see where it used to be kept.
Anyway, the other day when the greenhouse was transported Mike started talking to the man who lived opposite the old owner. Mike invited him to have a look at my little veg garden, it always amazes people just how much I can fit in. He told Mike he had some old gardening books that his late wife used to use. Yesterday he brought them over for me.

I love reading old gardening books. I enjoy seeing the difference between then & now. It gives quantities of seeds in this book for different purposes in pints & oz. Brilliant!
Enjoy your day.
