Thanks Woody your beans my plot - my broad beans are 5cms tall so will wait a bit for them to go in the garden,

The plant sale was just what was needed for the bright pots

Hello forkers,

Been in garden for a bit today in the rain digging over 2 veg beds and planting out peas I have sown in one bed and in the other broad beans from Woody - ones he grew - I have now sown some more peas in my row planters

Mrs Garden the plants in your pic are sweet peas in the trays -  here is my sweet peas I have pinched them out and they growing ok

Here is my bright coloured pots I wanted to plant up

and thanks to the Woody's plant sale I got some plants and planted them up with matching colours


This pic is my new planter at the back from homebase and planted up by me and the one in the front I planted using plants from the WW plant sale

Well the potting table has got a little bit further this afternoon

Put the blocks on the bottom of the legs for the table, then put it on the trestles to see how it looks and if any needed doing

It was a little high so the legs will go up past the top and help support the edging of the top of the potting table

The bottom shelf has now got a an extra board put on cause not as wide as top so now both 90cms wide to help attach to the legs and stand up properly

So will roughly look like this but not on the trestles - there is a nice knot hole in the top just right for the dibber tools - will take more pics as I go

I only had a bit of time in the afternoon to have a go and it rained on me while hammer in nails but I wanted to get it done

Hello all been a plantastic day

Got so many plants - a few that Woody grew - so many plants to choose from - so ended up with a car boot full they must of just jumped in there   

Had lemon drizzle cake yummy 

Thanks for the dry weather all  

Woody let us have a look around his garden so many nice plants in flower - I will have to see if Woody will let me add photos of his garden 

Bit of rain on way home - but when we got home it was dry outside and bit windy still even though my feet tired and me a bit tired and it was 4pm.

Well I had to get all the plants out of the car -  took a photo of them all together - so then I sorted out planting a few plants in my bright pots for front garden area and more plants into the planter in the back garden near my plastic greenhouse then some around the pond was then time to go in as it sloshed it down with rain   

Will add pics another day

Night all

Ideas for an old bird box

Posted: 25/04/2014 at 17:17

Make into a bee home, keep it how it is put on the ground or fence but not so high up.

I put up a bird house under a tree and I saw a bee go in the hole so maybe a bee home it will keep them dry still good for wildlife
