Hello Emma , yes it is a steep path , Ginagibbs surgestion of wood chips seem a good cheap answer , 

you could still try and put a couple of steps in , see if you can get any old brick people don't want , best of luck , you will have to keep us updated 

Been to plot today , not bad weather wise , o/h planted some more shallots and gladioli 

Harvested a load of sprout still a few left 

I finished putting grease band around fruit trees and winter washed them , didn't do a lot as got a slight chest infection from last weeks lurgy

Hope everybody is ok

Hello everybody , I like to think positive , it is definitely better for the average person , I remember the back to back house in Birmingham with toilets in a block in the yard ! Not the good old days by any imagination 

It has always been difficult to buy your own house , who can remember getting tax relief on there mortgage payments and life assuranc premiums ? 

On another note finally recovered from Lurgy but feeling a bit done in 

Have a good day everybody

Emma , rather than steps what about getting some metal rods to hammer into the ground and fix some rope to it , to act as a hand rail - idea 

Can you put a picture on the site ?

What ever you do best of luck
