He has Fairy - 2 pairs of gates, some stepover apple frames and a sweetpea frame in construction.  Excuse the green netting - waiting for hazel hurdles to arrive.

Morning

Sunshine here - forecast to last the day.  So much to do in the garden i don't know where to start.  I think a haphazard approach may be less daunting than a plan.

OH has nearly finished making our new (deer proofed) veg garden - its looking fab, and he has done it all from scratch himself.  Raised beds, new hedges planted, iron gates, GH moved in, trampoline moved out.  There are 8 fruit trees which we planted 4 years ago, when the plan was hatching, and they help to make it look established.  I am very proud

Just to add.... I grew these last year and i did pinch them out - i had sowed too early and they were getting in a right tangle inside, and i knew i shouldn't plant them outside til June.  It didn't do them any harm and they flowered well for me

COYR - 2nd generation scouser here.  My Dad would be sooooo happy to see them win the title this season - although i think they play on Sunday (expecting the family get-together to have a breakaway group this year).

I remember one school project where you had to report back on your parents religion ( wouldn't happen today!).  He told me to write LiverpoolFC on the form against his name
