Compost bays made from pallets kindly dropped off at my house by someone in my village, I can’t wait to fill these up.
Any excuse to use my new drill!

I need some more egg recipes, 2 eggs every day is quite a lot to eat.

I watched this too it was really interesting

Watching the first of the BBC’s new series on British Gardens in Time, which looks at the story of Christopher Lloyd’s garden at Great Dixter, Sussex. Such a stunning place.





This just reminded me I need to make some of these, I have one of these pot makers they are pretty easy to use.

A greenhouse really isn’t necessary to grow delicious vegetables, these I sowed a month ago and have been living quite happily on the sunny patio at the front of my house

Here you can see rocket, purple broccoli, mange tout and spinach. 





Celebrating the first day of my easter holiday with a very successful plant sale and the first two fresh eggs from my own chickens :D





Well the broccoli not eaten by deer/pigeons is doing so well! Yum yum.





Happy Friday everyone :)

My greenhouse is already being very productive. These little seedlings have all germinated so quickly and my tomatoes are coming along (but not as well as the ones on the windowsill).

Here you can see snapdragons, sweet peas, cornflowers and marigolds. I’m feeling a retro flowerbed coming on.
