Just in for a late lunch have managed to wash up lots of seed trays and cell trays

It was so hot for a while thought I would get a sun tan, gone bit cold and grey now

Too hot for a coat then too hot for a jumper on - sitting out doing the washing up saw lots of bees around even a tree bumble 

Doughnuts in the house yummy

Just watched Alan T on ITV+1  33  he was planting up a container and all garden bits for front garden was bird houses on Wednesday and they were so amazingly made

Obelixx -that looks great like the idea of the roof garden on top

Here is how it started

Here is the tools I have used crowbar, hammer, sledge hammer, ear protectors and gloves

This is part way through - the planks took of the back

 Here is how it looks now, nice tower of blocks and lots of planks of wood


New Allotment, advice please!!

Try to find lots of free pallets to make a compost heap.

Best tools for me a spade, hoe, hand held cultivator for weeding rake 

Raised beds are good   He makes good allotment videos bit by bit

Well today I had a go at 1 pallet lots of hammering and bashing done using a hammer, crowbar, ear protectors,14lb sledge hammer and some bricks, took a while some bits a small split but good to use.  Most was done with the hammer and crowbar 2 planks came off like the stone drop method way but with the bricks and sledge hammer dropped on an extra piece of wood to keep the other wood ok underneath.

Well I made it one pallet all in bits of wood - dismantled, making a cold frame from this pallet and another pallet

Hand a bit sore even though wearing gloves

Will get the hang of it for the next pallet bit easier once one done and you know how to dismantle the pallet

Will add pictures another day
