The Rich, the Poor & the Foolish by Paul Liburd

I won the book The Rich, the Poor & the Foolish by Paul Liburd via a giveaway on the Goodreads website.
This is a interesting little book from Paul Liburd and while I do not agree with all the arguments used for being ‘Rich’, it does make some very valid points for the ‘Foolish’ and ‘Poor’. It would make a good little read for those starting out in life and thinking about being self employed/entrepreneurial. If you are older and already fall into ‘Foolish’ and ‘Poor’, then you will need a lot more then this book to kick start you on the way to a better life.
P.S. If Paul Liburd reads this little review, I hope he likes the fact I’ve taken a book given to me for free and turned it in a possible way to make money by including and Amazon advert for the book in the review.

Seed Sensation

On Monday I ordered some seeds from The Organic Gardening Catalogue.
Today I decided to get seeding. Some seeds went into seed propagators that live in the spare bedroom, and others I sowed directly in to pots outside. Here are the seeds I ordered:
1 x BORAGE
1 x BURNET
1 x CHAMOMILE Matricaria
1 x CHERVIL
1 x CLARY
1 x CUMIN
1 x DOG ROSE
1 x FEVERFEW
1 x GARLIC CHIVES
1 x GOOD KING HENRY
1 x HYSSOP
1 x POT MARJORAM
1 x PURSLANE Golden
1 x SAGE
1 x SALSIFY Mammoth
1 x SAVORY Summer
1 x SORREL Broad leaved
1 x TARRAGON
1 x WELSH ONION

The backyard is now starting to look like the kitchen garden that I intend it to be. There are still a good number of plants to pot. I have 16 different plants in the propagators and will use at least a couple of each. I also have a dozen small pots ‘Cold Acclimatizing’ in the kitchen.
It will soon be time to pay another visit to Richardsons Garden Centre, and purchase a lot more big plant pots, and compost.
I’m hoping my fingers are green.

Richard and the Beanstalk

My plans for World Domination are not going so well, but my plans for a small Kitchen Garden are coming along just fine.
A second trip to Richardsons Garden Centre saw me return home with six bags of compost, a few plants, and several pots.

The seeds I’d put in trays last week are also coming along very well. In fact the Dwarf Beans (Purple Teepee) have shot up so fast, I’ve had to replant them in larger posts. I also planted a couple outside, just to see how well they will do. Fingers crossed on that one.

The backyard is slowly but surely turning into a small kitchen garden. I now have a couple of different mint plants, a blueberry bush, thyme, rosemary, and I’ve also sown spring onions. Once again I need to revisit the garden centre to purchase some more pots and also some canes for the beans to grow up.
Roll on harvest time. :)
