Busy Weekend

A busy and productive weekend on the veg plot

Why do one job at a time when you can do three? Planting trees, building a path and raised beds.

Not quite to plan. Rampaging sheep in the garden and tree planting discovery.

Building The Raised Beds

Planning and getting the wood for my raised beds.

Mini Farming

Reviewing a rather good book from the states about self-sufficiency

Liming Fields

Liming the fields and fighting marauding sheep!

Chitting Potatoes
Greenhouse

Yet More Greenhouse Building

Will the greenhouse ever be finished? And answering question about solid base versus a border.

Constructing the Greenhouse 2

Greenhouse construction continues, nearly ready to glaze.

Garlic, Shallots & Polytunnel Growing

Planting out pot grown garlic and reviewing a good book on polytunnel growing.

Finishing the back border, cheap bark chippings, solar panels and bulk deliveries
