Bekkie: Reggie sleeps in the hallway with all doors shut to him and the hallway light is too bright to leave on. Now he has a light area (by the front door) and a dark area (under the stairs) to pick from. He slept well yesterday but with 2 1/2 hours of wakking, sniffing, meeting new peoole and dogs, AND a bath we ALL slept well!
The sun rises to the left (same side as the lawn and manshed) and goes across the school field at the end of the garden. I might need to be careful to ensure large plants go in the second greenhouse to not block little plants in the first!
The first greenhouse came with the house, the second is actually the other halfs from when he was a little boy! Both need much tlc but being 'up north it will be wonderful to extend the growing season on a few of the kitchen essentials (Not to mention have somewhere warm to hide!)
Lasted five minutes outside: just long enough to bring my potted chives in to give them some fresh soil and put them in the greenhouse to encourage them to get going (I've more in a pot outside that I will be able to alternate with).Currently not snowing but my lord is that wind biting like a sharp thing!
Playing with ideas for the vegetable garden again. I'm thinking of moving the strawberries into hanging baskets so they're out of the way of the dog. The garden itself will be fenced off so it would work nicely to have the fence behind the greenhouses and around bed 4 Leaving beds 5 and 6 and non edible I.e. doesn't matter if it gets peed on!
Not that I get many strawberries anyway since I normally end up letting the birds eat them as I just feel guilty!
Ahh here comes the snow again...
