I tried writing one myself, but ran out of steam and haven't written anything for ages.

I use to take a picture of my garden on the first of the month and hoped to build up a picture of how the garden changes throughout the year, but like I said, I'm not very good at keeping a diary and it all faded out.

..but I know I should start it again, it is fun, even if I'm the only one really reading my own blog.

I think I will write a blog and also keep this one going as well.

I must admit I enjoy writing it also looking back but the best thing is getting good advice from this fourm it's ace

I have just set up a blog using Wordpress, must be easy if I can do it.  I have self hosted it to so I have full control.  even if no one reads it, it will be interesting to look back on and admire the success or lament the failure

CluelessGardener

ok I will try and finish of my post 

here is the images of the lawn after one cut two electric rakes and a final cun with the secondhand lawnmower


 


 

I'm well pleased with the cut and looking forward to working hard on my lawn next year the ground is so so hard and dry I think i will just fork it and level the pot holes with soil and a bit of seed this year 

OK  i've been working hard on my greenhouse base today and should finish digging it tomorrow (all done by hand) but tomorrow I will get out the petrol tiller to dig the last 2 to 3 Inches needed to get the frame down under the turf.

 

O'yes I have to move it down the garden a bit more as it's to near one of the dogs that have been layed to rest by the fence

anyway here are the last lot of pics for you lot this week 


 


 


 


 

the frame you can see is the inside of the greenhouse I may deside to brick up to the top level what do you think

Morning all not a lot to report this week, I fallen over and twisted my ankle again but not before I finish cutting the wooden frame for the greenhouse base.

You may be saying well he’s spending a lot of time and money on the green house base. Well it’s like this I have a very uneven garden and in the two meters I have a fall of around eight  inches, maybe more but I want maximum soil on the inside of my greenhouse without losing it to footing also I want to add some wooden posts to the inside of the green hose to attach wire for my tomatoes also money is a big factor. The wood I picked up was on sale 6x2.4m decking wood sealed for only £18.00 I think it was a bargain and it’s thicker than most decking at a whopping 32 mm were as the decking that I already have is only 20 mm (this needs replacing next year as a chair with me sat on it broke through a big knot. This this also were I intend to pinch the wood from for raised beds and compost bin I shall be cutting the wood and routing my posts for this project later is month.

 

Not to miss out on free compost I have my green  waste this year in to green bins I use for recyclingI may even keep it  going in a plastic bin and just empty it out after two or three months. I keep a bucket it the garage for when I have muddy boot on just to pee in and then I empty it on to my compost bin.

I have also started to collect leaves for my garden but I only have three smallish trees and a neighbouring tree that will soon just sneeze and shake all its leaves at any time all over my garden however like Monty did last week was to take his lawnmower out to his lawn and collect leaves for composting I’m going to do the same but I’m taking my lawnmower down the local walk way/ park and bag it up to take home (only about 300 yards and I’m collecting).

I have to re-pot some herbaceous perennials the names I have forgotten but I will have a look on line as to their names but these need re-potting as I haven’t decided where I’m going to plant them and they are beginning to look pot bound.

 

Ok I’ve found the names of the plants I need to re-pot  

Papaver “double tangerine” Spanish poppy

Echinacea Pallida “coneflower” Purple flower

Echinacea Paradoxa “coneflower” Yellow flower

 

I will post this on my new Blog which I have started while it looks a little bit empty at the moment I hope to fill it with my hope dreams and desires also on-going projects which at the moment have doubled in size.

Here is the link  http://cluelessgardner.weebly.com/my-blog.html
