Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 4

Been busy in the garden planting up seeds which have germinated. Managed to get a hop plant from a local nursery too!
Stocked up on herb remedies, vitamins and Rennies etc.
Refilled all water stores and water butts in the garden.

I've been sorting out the garden and veg plots ready for this years growing attempts. Stocked up on seeds and planted some spuds. Not very exciting but necessary!
