Hello all

Done another 12 buckets of topsoil down the garden, bag getting lower.

Cleared veg beds all composted and cleared away old pot of compost as flowers gone and found vine weevil - gave to the birds for lunch

still so many plants in flower in the garden

HELLO FORKERS!

MrsGarden - Had planned day of rest today, but hey ho, delivery came earlier than thought it would so plans had to change.  Once it is all in the back garden I will try to get a rest.  Off to bed soon.  V. tired.

WW me not like spinach, not Popeye.

4thPanda.- yep, that's me, up and down the road on the skateboard, not really, rushing round garden (speeding) using it as a barrow - too many twists and turns on narrow pathway to use actual barrow at minute.

So I have shifted 12 - 20litre buckets down the garden using my skateboard which made it much easier still lots to go

but I do have achy muscles from tree planting yesterday

Gg I have said before that i don't know where you get your energy and drive. I guess 20 trees, if I know you. Now put your feet up for a bit… or maybe a week?

 

 

No Woody many, many more than that. They were only small saplings but I managed to plant....................80!!!!!

Energy from Weetabix and so many things on my list to do yet

Evening all

Been out doing the tree planting saplings at Sholing Valley study centre, was a dry day not too bad weather wise today, spitting after a break so done tree planting till lunch - there was lots of hard brick like soil to plant the tree saplings in and it was knackering.

can anyone guess how many I planted?

Also planted out an Acanthus and some Campion in their garden to look at in spring, it had a few bare patches last time we went.

lunch nice, then as the volunteer had brought our tyre planter back as the men at his work could not do it.

Was trying to finish turning the tyre into a planter really difficult one to do lots of muscle and strength needed, was trying to do it on my own for ages bit more turned but hurt myself a bit then help from others and we made it finally after a long time.

So that will be up the station some when and planted up, not trying one with a wheel rim in again too stiff and hard too do

not been that well after a bit of lunch and tyre wrestling rather icky, sick - not nice, resting now watching TV 

new plot

Spell checker button disappeared but when I spell something wrong it underlines it with a red wavy line

now that Verdun has cut the grass it must be nicer in the garden to get into the log cabin, is it warm in there do you have a heater?.  I am not there yet few more bits to do yet tree planting day tomorrow
