I thought now what can I do with these, then it came to me..... I am fortunate in having alot of ivy growing around my garden, so bugs and insects do have hotels to stay in, but I thought I would create a 5* hotel
just need somewhere to put them any idea?
Here is my nice tidy vegetable patch. I gave it a good digging over, I was really surprised how many worms I had so that has got to be good! I now empty the tray from under the chickens onto the veg patch twice a week, I must ask Lottie if I can put this on all of the beds as I'm sure there are some vegetables who don't like freshly manured ground. I was reading her website (link on the left) and she has loads growing still, puts mine to shame! But it is my first year! I had no idea that the late salad crops that Lottie is growing could be done outside I thought they needed to be in a greenhouse, unfortunately I can't spare the room in the greenhouse at the moment. So I will have to have a go at those next year, cos I really like fresh salad. Anyway I still have some chard, leeks and 2 parsnips!! Oh yes and at the end of the right hand bed are some alpine strawberries which are fruiting again and a small butternut squash!
I really need to hit the bottom flower bed it needs serious re-development, so I might have a go at that next week. I have a number of plants that need moving, to make way for the covered chicken run and also ones that have out grown their space. Mark is off over half term so I think then would be the ideal time to construct the run. I had better get a move on then hadn't I!!!
I have actually taken the pic from the side so you get a better view!
PS I may not post for a few days as I have to go into hospital for a minor op tomorrow (Fri) should be out either late tomorrow or Saturday depending on what they do??
