I have decided this year to make my small gardens more manageable as I'm knocking on a bit and have other things on my plate.
No more hanging baskets or making beds bigger. I'm getting rid of two small beds and putting turf down. I have lots of pots at the back for variety and colour and could never get rid of my Lillies as they do it all by the selves. Im definatley getting rid of the Summerhpuse as it's becoming a dumping ground and buying a new shed. I have 5 trees which give structure to the garden and I'm keeping those.
I have a small veg patch which is very productive but I'm only going to grow what we eat. No more trying new stuff. Still picking armfuls of R.beans, 5 neighbours had loads yesterday and I still picked another washing up bowl full this morning. I am always going to grow my Toms outside as they have gone crazy this year. The most Iv ever had on each plant. Two words for one, that's me. In other words I'm cutting right back on the physical side of my gardens.
About the white labels, they supply a little pencil with them don't they. I wonder why always found a pencil to be the best marker.
