Printing and potatoes

Phil spent this Sunday helping his mom buy and set-up a new TV, which gave me time to get a few jobs done at home. Now that the weather has improved (hopefully) I thought it was time to start planting some vegetables. I made a start today by planting a small bag of seed potatoes, reusing an old Ikea bag as the container. The Ikea bag made a perfect container, it just needed a few small holes cutting in the sides and bottom of the bag before putting the compost & potatoes in.

After my potatoes were planned I made use of the rest of the afternoon to get some printing done, including creating mother’s day cards for mine and Phil’s moms. ┬áThe flower printed on the cards is Cosmos Bipinnatus or Garden Cosmos. As the weather was so nice I sat in the garden to carve the image & then did the printing inside the shed.
