The quiltova family, including husband, dogs and cats have spent just about the whole weekend in the garden, which for us, is just how it should be. With a late start due to ground-works, we are about on top of the spring jobs now.
The new wall is planted up, and the old one re-planted, only a few other bits to go in to it
Sorry it's in the shade
The fence is finished complete with gate
The veg plot is coming along
We have spuds, onions, shallots, garlic, carrots, trunips, beetroot, parnsip, brocoli, French Beans, Broad Beans and sweet corn, plus quite a few annuals for cutting. Still to go in tommies, peppers, courgettes squash, leeks and sweet potatoes
And a new area of grass has been prepare and seeded.
You can see an electric fence around it to deter dogs and cats who could destroy all our hard work inside 10 minutes.
And finally a few flowers. This is the first year we have had plants, and flowers in Spring, so I am more excited about them than usual. And I've grown them all myself from seed. And the photos aren't half bad either!
There are plenty of other jobs to do, but the rush is off now, they can all be done through summer at our leisure. Watering does take time, but hopefully the brains of the outfit can set me up a system of fixed hoses and taps which will save me time, and energy hauling long hoses around. Oh of course then the weeding starts. No peace for the wicked as my mum used to say!
