A day in the garden!

Hubby had to go to work today so I was left all alone, well not quite Tori was in bed asleep until 10am and the only time she comes out in the garden is to bring drinks or ask me something! So I was all alone!!!!!!!! I decided to do a bit well alot I did remember to take some pics but only after I had started but I think you can tell??

Before photos.............




after photos..............




It doesn't look much but we need to re-route the path. To move the chickens I had to take down a trelis that screened the water butts at the very bottom of the garden. Now you can see the butts from the very top of the garden so we are altering the route. I also did a lot of weeding which I din't take pics of, I finished the edging to the chooks run, they seem alot happier where they are now.......



did you know chooks can be fussy? I didn't I did a cabbage lolipop for them yesterday and it was still there today look....


funny really cos they will eat spring greens? But they tucked into the pointed cabbage lolipop I gave them



and this is all that is left now....



and this is all the rubbish that needs to go to the tip...



but that will have to wait till next week!!

I thought I had better tell you what seeds are growing in the green house....

3 types of salad leaves, tomatoes, peppers, chillies, hollyhocks, sweetpeas, cosmos, morning glory, cornflower, Nicotiana sylvestris and coleus! Think I really should make some space for some more veg!!!!!!

Hubby is now watching the rugby so I think I may go and have a soak in a hot bath to ease all my aches and pains!!!!!!!!!

Hi Libby,

Lots of hard work going on in your garden. Your chooks look very ahppy in their new enclosure. What a fun idea that cabbage lollipop!

I hope that well deserved hot bath got rid of all your aches and pains!
