Well it has warmed up so much that we will let the Rayburn out today. We lit it in October so will have to organise the chimney sweep for this week if possible! I expect 'T' will complain she hates it when it gets cold. I miss it too, but it gets just too hot to keep it in!!!
I went down to let the chickens out, walked back up the garden, put my hand out to open the door and my back went!!! Its a muscle thing I believe, so I lie abit, sit abit, move around a very little bit and take an awful lot of pain killers!!
This has happened at a crucial time of year as alot of my tropicals need to be pulled in and out of the greenhouse to harden off. I need to pot on my tomatoes etc. etc. Plus all the watering!!
I thought I had been good yesterday, as I had to dig out all the old bedding from the chicken run, lime it and put in fresh new bark chippings. I only part filled the bucket and took plenty of rests cos its a long time since I did work as heavy as this and doing it this way took me 3 hours.
Anyway the chickens are happy, with there fresh bedding
the old bedding I use as a mulch on the flower beds
the veg patch is pretty organised, although a bit behind and now will be even more so!!!!
now a view looking back up the garden
All the while my friend, had made himself comfortable in my chair
Now he does this I make a concerted effort to make sure water is available, in large quantities in the greenhouse, just in case he gets shut in, as its not always me that closes the doors!!
