Had a gardening day at my parents' house today, since the weather finally turned nice. I help them as and when they need to keep things in check, although today I nagged them into letting me come once a week because I want their garden to be as spic and span as mine and they are getting too old to tend it properly.
My dad's a chef so the food was great and came home with some cuttings and bags of horse poo, hurrah! Finally, I can add the poo to my pampas grass mountain and have a mountain of poo instead and I can add more every time I visit my parents, so hopefully my borders will get a treat next spring.
When I got in, I also found out hubby had been laying a step at the far end of my veg plot which was a wonderful surprise since he suffers from CFS and really shouldn't be up to hard graft but he tries every day to be fully fit again and I adore my new step! The veg plot is really starting to look the part.
After a bit of rest, I worked in my own garden, potting on the cuttings I bought home, some french beans and annuals and then mixed up my various compost bins which includes using the sheers to chop everything into small pieces. Phew, I'm knackered now but tomorrow is another sunny day forecast, so woohoo, more time with the plants.
