Some Pictures!!!

Firstly, spot the difference:





And I'm not talking about the lack of dodgy looking leeks! I'd have cut down the rest of the tree on the left but it's quite big and to be honest I wasn't confident enough to do on my own with the trusty bow saw.

Now that spring has finally started, some signs of life:


This years forced rhubarb, hopefully be ready in a week or so.


Daffodils and garlic just beginning to get going.


Newly potted up Blueberries.


Crocuses growing along the lane - we were lucky enough to get some crocus and daffodil bulbs from the council to plant around the site last Autumn and they've just started coming through - despite my random planting of the ones I put it!

Up on the forgotten plot...


It doesn't appear to look that bad from the picture and the small area of dug ground at the far end of the picture has grown significantly since the picture. Truth be told the soil in a dream to dig really, it's good deep, loamy soil. Plenty of weeds too! It's also a bugger to keep moisture in it come summer, but that's a long way off yet.

However, it's not all good news up there. This is the remains of the greenhouse. At least I can get to cut the hedge now I guess...

Poor greenhouse - will you resuce it?

Sadly it looks in better condition in the picture than it is in the 'flesh'. The right hand side is pretty broken/melted and the door has had it too. Not sure if it'd be worth the cost/effort to patch it up :>(

shame about the greenhouse.

that's not the one we dismantled is it ? How about a huge sheet of perspex for the side that has melted ? Make a little wooden frame for it to sit in / give support to the rest of it.

Shame about the greenhouse. Rest of it looks pretty neat though. There's just never enough time!
