I know it’s been another massive gap between postings but we’ve been super busy. Since we sold the boat at Easter our focus has been on the garden. Specifically the bottom part. After our mammoth effort earlier in the year (see here: https://101in10012014.wordpress.com/2015/07/10/day-656-63-finish-bottom-area-of-garden-update/) we have been working away trying to get the bottom area finished.
And I’m pleased to say we no longer have a mountain of dirt – it has all been sifted into neat & tidy veg beds. These have been planted up and are already providing us with food and great satisfaction!
We may add a fence & a gate next year, so we’ve held off making any new compost bins but the space is there ready for them. I’m delighted with how it’s turned out. And the best bit is that I never have to weed that bloody gravel EVER AGAIN!!!
We have been working like demons in the garden, particularly in the bottom end. Since having the patio done last year we have had a renewed vigour for “getting on”
It started in May when we had a week off and a skip to fill with unwanted rubble & soil. This is how it looked at the beginning of that week:
We cleared loads, burned loads, went to the recycle centre, moved tonnes of soil and ended up with this:
We were then in the unprecedented position of being able to order our shed and the stuff to do the decking and the stuff to do the last two veg beds. These aren’t finished yet but as you can see, we are making significant progress….
Sorry for the copious amount of photos but I’m delighted with how things are coming along. All being well, we should get the rest of the bottom area finished by the end of this year. Which would be amazing! Watch this space…..
