Hello people, 


Spring is in the air and i have risen from my hibernation (with cronic back pain) and have restarted my epic quest to tame the garden.


I have given the grass its first cut of the season, the strange thing is it hasn't stopped growing all winter!


I have started to clear the second front half of the house ready for a herb garden

Ran out of weed prof membrane so thats on the list if things to get tomorrow along with 250kg of shingle, terracotta pots and herbs.


Stay tuned for more wonderful updates.

Hi guys, 

Back in October i was launched 6ft in the air by my partners pony and landed on my backside on very hard ground. Paramedics were called because I could not breath nore stand (after getting up and walking pony back to her stable) I bruised by coccis and my back muscles have been playing up since, even emptying the dishwasher hurts.

I am dreading cutting the grass (it does help having a self-propelled mower) and building a veg patch next weekend.
