Hubby and I have been out in the garden today. I have to be honest, it was not the way I had intended to spend the afternoon, but Christmas can wait and we actually got a lot done.
We are going to get a shed. When is anybody’s guess, but things have to be sorted in the garden for somewhere to put it as we did with the greenhouse.
So today Hubby decided to sort out the mini man closet, and basically took on more than he could chew. The garden was a mess and he asked me to give him a hand.
We have therefore moved the closet and put it on a solid base so that the bigger man cave can go against the back wall of the house when we get the shed.
The turf removed to level the new site has been turned upside down and put adjacent to the junk plot which is where we have planted our seed potatoes. We have a lemon plant there and I was also pleased to note the mint is coming up again.
We’ve got rid of the ballerina apple tree. It did nothing last year, not a single flower, and this year is totally dead. We won’t be getting a replacement. We’ve kept the gooseberry bush, but disposed of the blackberry, blueberry and raspberry bushes as they did nothing last year.
These are the Minion patches. Ou r original raised bed wasn’t big enough so Hubby dug over another square and we’ve planted 100
These are our sprouting seedlings, the cucumber in on the left, and the peppers on the right. The green beans, tomatoes Mk II, beetroot, radishes and carrot haven’t shown their faces above the dirt yet.
It’s all coming together.
