Slow progress

nasty grass

When it only one person mainly doing all the work as the other even if they want to help but cannot due to constantly bleeding (re kidney problem) that their seems to be no cure for it.

I try and spilt myself in 2 trying to do front garden and back at the same time which

Cannot be done really can it, apart from spilt the day up so many hours in the front then in the back garden.

On a daily basic but it getting there and that’s the main thing but at times I feel I should be getting their quicker than I am doing at present.

The before I started doing the nasty grass that needs to be removed from this area

Hopefully it will all be done and looking good

Today I had a lovely surprise we have frogs in the old blue washing up bowl I had not got round to clearing it out thinking it fall of old drink cans and to my surprise spotted a frog move in the water



All so the bug hotel is getting busy now I thought nothing would go in how wrong was I

planted my lupines this morning out the front garden and in the rain and open all my compost bins to let the rain into them

it was a pleasure to re start the back boarders and having the dogs outside with me without having to keep them inside  because off other dogs just come in for coffee  we got grey clouds again

Spent the day in the back garden in between coffee breaks  and rain and hail showers

This morning the Sun has come out so after my 2nd coffee I will restart were I left of yesterday it is looking good  hoping the trail cam will let us see the frog today yesterday the wind moved the camera

Completed back border in the small wheelbarrow I have at one end of the back border I sowed some rudbeckia (Irish eyes) Flanders poppy and stocks mixed all the seeds up in some compost and put into the wheelbarrow

i sowed some  lettuces today and potted on some tomatoes not sure of name as got from Church taking it a little easy but will get back to the weeding in the back tomorrow

Nasty grass update

This is nasty grass I do not know it right name bit it trying to take over so I am trying to clear it we have some fennel at the back I belive it broze fennel but not sure

Trying to take the bindweed and bramble out as well as I have some in the backgarden

You can just see the marigolds  through the grass its hard work but will be worth it when it done

I have one wheelbarrow full already but I will not be composting it here as I do not have a burning area

Came in for lunch then the heavens open just as I had finshed getting the washing in whitch was good






We managed to take it to the tip on Saturday I planted my new tree on Sunday

Weeping willow once the pond is up and running it will look lovely in years to come

my ground is so hard to dig i planted my new plants that i brought yesterday this morning  and it was so hard but there in still need to weed the grass out  but it getting their slowly
