Next to my little old greenhouse is a paved area where I like to do my potting. It was looking very forlorn and neglected.
Inside the greenhouse needed a sweep and tidy up too. What good fortune then that a young boy wanted to earn some money and I was too busy to do it myself so was very willing to pay him to do it for me so he set to it. About 2 hours later it was transformed.We had one clean and tidy greenhouse.With a clean and tidy potting area next to it. That was the best fiver I’ve spent this weekend !
Ribbett!We found this little frog in the tortoise pen.
Seedlings are beginning to germinate.
This time of year is so exciting in the garden.
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. I left the garden before it was quite finished but it was looking very promising by 11 am today. 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. There are lots of lovely Victorian and Edwardian houses in Hastings. The ones lining the park are each painted a different colour. Different terraces have their own unique features – they are all very charming. We had a delightful stroll around and a sit on the decking of the cafeteria. This was the inside of the cafeteria. I really enjoyed sitting in the sunshine with Rebecca and obviously Harvey, Ramsay and not forgetting Beryl.
See you soon. I was sorry to say goodbye but also excited to see my finished vegetable garden. I was not disappointed. I love my vegetable garden extension. I really like how neat and tidy it is and how well they finished everything. I spent a very happy afternoon sowing the runner beans, climbing French beans, broad beans and peas in to my new beds. They are full up now so I may need some more 🙂
Just the greenhouse and fruit cage to be built now. The base for the greenhouse is down but I need to choose which one I want.
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!
