After a good night's sleep thanks to my friend giving me some of her special lavender and marjoram sleep potion to try under my pillow , I felt wonderfully refreshed and thought I,d get this years beanpoles sorted out .
For this I like to cut 8 hazel branches at about 7 or 8 ft high and a good 9 ft one for the horizontal one along the top . I tidy them up and use the trimmings for pea sticks and plant supports etc .
Its a very satisfying job . I decided to call it a day after doing this though and after closing up the greenhouse I have come in for a nice cup of tea .
It has begun to rain again , which is good , because it will make the ground soft and easy to push the poles into the earth tomorrow .
