Imagine my excitement....

That's what I thought? But the lawn in total at the back is only about 9ftx 11ft so I have to be careful not to make it look too out if proportion!!! Everything is just looking so sad! It's heavy clay too and want to improve it but can't add more because if I pick up the height too much then it will sit on and rot my fence! But how do I improve the soil when I have plants in!

Imagine my excitement....

But somehow its addictive as I want insurance policies incase my plants didn't come through winter!!

Nothing for it, will have to make my boarders deeper. They are only 1.5ft and my other half said he only wanted me to take 1/2 ft of the lawn up! Looks like I will need to creep it up to 3 ft, leaving about a 5ft lawn!!!! Ooops

Imagine my excitement....

Sad thing is I hardly have any room for things. My partner said that things weren't touching last year so I have plenty if room. But it was year 1 of my perennials, so hopefully this year it will be fuller.

If not my family will love me. Just have to set to to make my square pots. Wondering how big I need my pots?!


Also need to save up for compost!

I grew sun gold last year and only one I got a crop from. Rest were cut from plant and ripened indoors as I thought they were going to sit there for ever!!

Sweet pepper seed germination - epic failure!

Covered, thermometer in and not dried out. My only seedling now stands about 3/4 of an inch tall but is lonely! Nothing else showing at all!

If push comes to shove I will end up with mine staying in conservatory, but I don't want my lovely farrow and ball cream table to get yellow Tom stains so may mean a home move about!! I'm staying hopefully that all will be ok. Don't panick Captain Mannering!!!!
