Nutcutlet you may be able to work it out from my other thread, drawn shape wrong way so will end up looking like a flower when cut out if not you end up with points and then when turned inside out the tyre is much bigger

Hello and Evening Forkers

Me knackered today having a rest day

Yesterday dug up and sorted a pile of dirt and compost out for the new tyre planter for the station and took up the station, skateboarded it down the slope , well with some plants and bulbs and all the dirt, cleared the litter away as well 

It was a sunny day quite warm it did feel like spring

Hello all

WW- Sholing built in one day that would of been fast, I spent the day shifting dirt 

David K can I have some of your Cake please Victoria sponge my favourite

Been busy out in garden getting down all the compost filled up all veg beds, flowers dug up and filled few flower beds and used rock dust on them just the flower bed so far - veg beds still to add the rock dust. Then flowers were re planted up - was out there till it got too dark to do anything more   

Got down to the pallet, think I would like to make a planter from that

Lots of birds flying around, spotted you dove x2

Good Evening FORKERS

KEF - me bionic - that would be nice

really need to make my list of things to do smaller even if I ache still, think the day after doing tree planting my arms have been in pain too much enthusiasm of seeing how many I could plant.

Just want to make the veg and flowers grow ok as not added any good soil for a while and levels in the raised beds was getting low
