Thanks for all your support nice to be on such a friendly, helpful forum for a change.
Well nothing has happened with getting our stuff back but I've been working hard over the half term holiday to get it back into some decent state, i've got our tools hanging up and used an old mini pvc green house shelving to store small tool, watering can, bottles etc on, so the inside of the shed is looking really organised right now. I've built a composter and planned my beds.
I've started to replace some bits and bobs thanks to people being lovely. We were given 4 herb plants and 6 strawberries by the local plant stall because she was so disgusted by the theft, So got half the strawberry plants we had back we have a rosemary, sage, thyme and marjoram. We found a plastic barrel washed up on the beach on sunday so we're going to use that as a water butt for now and then wait to get a proper one, when we have got ourself sorted.
My dad's kindly offered to rebuy us a coldframe. We said we'll give it till mid march if we hear nothing he'll replace it then.
We're going to get some pots on this payday, and I'm looking out for bargains on the pots.
To cheer myself up I brought some fruit trees, an apple, a pear, a plum and a cherry. We got 4 free 30 litre pots, so we're going to grow them in the pots so if we get a house with a nice big garden we can grow them on there at some point, Total came to £29.99p plus free p&p.
Got some vouchers so I'm going to by a walking pvc mini greenhouse and I'm looking out for cheap strawberry planters.
So hopefully with a little more hard work and tlc we should get there with the allotment.
gardengirl.. I am growing flowers with my vegs, growing sunflowers, sweet peas, cosmos, alsorts really, mostly flowers that I can cut. I want to grow a climber over the front of the shed, something that smells like honeysuckle or jasmine. But not sure at the moment.
