I'm a bit tee'd of today!! I am having awful problems with my knees! I used to suffer quite badly with my knees aching etc, which I could understand, but surely now I have lost two and half stone I shouldn't be having these problems!! I've only really noticed it since I've upped the exercise!! I don't know if its not one thing its another!! Do I let it stop me? Do I flip!!!
So look what I got in Devizes market for £1
Over 3lbs of Seville Oranges!!! Oh! I know I bought some the other day, but with the mincer I bought off Ebay for £10 including postage, winging its way to me as we speak, and they where alot cheaper than the other lot I bought!!
I also bought some 4ply wool so I can have a go at another Japenese Amigurumi Little animal, whilst I sit down this afternoon to rest my knees and watch the DVD Kathryn left behind!!!
Before all of that I decided to start digging over some of the veg patches....
I had the onions in this bed last year and I plan to grow my root veg in here this year! Thats why I haven't put any compost or chicken manure on. I found loads of worms in here. All done!
This bed had my salads and garlic in
I thought I would put the onions in here this year but look what I found..
2 lovely parsnips. This was a surprise because although I planted some last year, I had used old seed! I've since found out this is not a good idea and explains why I thought none had come up!!!
Anyway I stopped here becuase of my poor old knees. But I have a 2 slight problems that I'm hoping all my lovely blog readers may be able to help me solve......
I have put the bird feeder in the middle of this bed! If you look on the ground you can see two different colours, one is the aubiose from the chicken run and the other is the scattered bird food, I did used to have this feeder in the gravel but you can imagine the mess, so where do I put it or what can I put under it!! I don't really want to move it further down the garden because we won't be able to see the birdies and we do have some beautiful ones come to visit! But we do need to get it out of the veg bed!!!
I plan to really sort this bed out but first I need to see if I can sort this problem out
In the first picture you can see some buddleia and the second a ceanothus, can you see how they lean out? To some extent I understand becuase my neighbour on the left not only has a large apple tree in the middle of her 12ft wide garden, but also her lefthand boundary consists of enormous silver birch trees. This is a very sunny border, I am facing south in the first picture with the camera. Any suggestions please as to what to do, what may grow, you can see she has loads growing in her garden and the roots sucker off into my garden I'm forever trying to grow my own plants and not her suckers!!!
