Hello all

Gardengirl.. here thanks for missing me so nice, have been a bit busy and was trying to catch up with you all bit by bit so much going on here on forum.

Me been pallet bashing and sawing - buying wood paint and plants from homebase, sowing lots of seeds and more

Was nice and sunny Tuesday so lugged loads of concrete posts down garden using a wheelbarrow - clearing the path so heavy felt rough badly since then

Me not to well doc said I got virus infection temp high - so I did not want to pass it on virtually - had most of week bad headache pains glands up, said vitamin c good to take so I have berocca and brought some Manflu drink ok quite strong and lozenges - like them soothing I wanted to try them.

I rested a small bit but wanted to garden yesterday so spent the day weeding the front garden all done and planted out a few plants

Station was planned for today so got the zingy lime painted on the sleepers looks so good

Pallets

Hello all

Here is an update of my pallet projects this is for a strawberry raised planter

Started like this below I had already took off the blocks and the back planks few days before

This is one bit cut off I divided it up into 3 pieces to get front, back and two sides

Here it is laid out when I finished cutting up the three sections

With the sides cut to size

This is it put together, I sawed up a plank and a half - down the middle in half to attach to the bottom to make sure the planter has more supported

I am going to paint it some when - the rain is stopping that

Rootrainers, are they worth it

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 15:18

My root trainers are worth it they have lasted a long while even if I managed to slip a bit of the tray on top they are all held together in the frame or green tray under as I have a few different ones even a row trainer

I sow lots of runner French beans and sweetcorn they are so easy to get the plants out and plant and the roots are great, I normally use a hand held bulb planter to quick make hole the plant them out

Here is a video about them

Evening all

Well done Chicky for the greenhouse move

Goodie I got a sunny day yeah, so I spent ages outside up to 6.50 then came in for food, I have been sorting out so many plant pots, cell trays, seed trays and clearing all the horrible slugs into the bin.

I made a right mess to tidy it all up - all sorted in to sizes lots of pots 

My variegated lavender 6x little plants came today from qvc they look great sent from unwins 

Found a frog today in my dads area of paint brushes in pots of water they have been they a while so I emptied the pots and it jumped up surprised me - so I put it down the garden nearer my small pond bucket in the ground super fast frog may be he will move in to my pond or the big pond

There is also a method Alys Flower does on her allotment called lasagne gardening about 6 minutes in on the video where she uses cardboard horse muck and few bits more to help keep the weeds away with no digging
