Vegetable Garden Extension

Next to my little old greenhouse is a paved area where I like to do my potting.  It was looking very forlorn and neglected.

This time of year is so exciting in the garden.
Beans germinating This was exciting too.  The two dear men who are transforming my vegetable garden came back this morning to finish off the vegetable bed extension.  They are so helpful.  Not only are they doing what I wanted them to do in the garden, today they also set my wonky rotary washing line up straight, stopped my hose dripping and mended the greenhouse door so it shuts properly.G and D in garden I left the garden before it was quite finished but it was looking very promising by 11 am today.Veg garden 6 Harvey and I went to Hastings to visit Rebecca and Beryl.  It was such a sunny day the drive was enjoyable and the houses and local park were all seen in their glory.Hastings 13-4-14 4 There are lots of lovely Victorian and Edwardian houses in Hastings.Hastings 13-4-14 3 The ones lining the park are each painted a different colour.Hastings 13-4-14 2 Different terraces have their own unique features – they are all very charming.Hastings 13-4-14 1 We had a delightful stroll around and a sit on the decking of the cafeteria.Hastigs 1 This was the inside of the cafeteria.  I really enjoyed sitting in the sunshine with Rebecca and obviously Harvey, Ramsay and not forgetting Beryl.

I have had a flower bed created too for the roses I was given by my sisters for my birthday – I need the roses now girls as I finally have somewhere to put them 🙂Space for roses

We were so lucky with the weather this weekend.  I enjoyed seeing lots of lovely people and I am absolutely delighted with the progress in the garden.  All I need to do now is get on with losing weight!

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    I envy you your gardening skills. I often have visions of beginning a vegetable garden but they never eventuate.
