  1. 10 wheelbarrow

    by , 05-02-2008 at 05:31 PM
    My mate at the Docks is to me a bargain hunter he will search anywhere for a bargain. Unlike me i will spend about ten times as much from a shop than sourcing it from a jumble or boot sale. So i now have a good barow for a tenner. Clynchy then said to me that a garden bench on the lottie would be good, you can see where this is going. My mate is now my contact for sourcing materials.

  2. Hot hot hot! (in the greenhouse)

    It reached 25 degrees in the greenhouse yesterday.

    Have got hold of a huge bin ful of well rotted pony poo for veg garden, will be digging in tomorrow and can get more which is great. Have cleared just about all of the shrubs and bulbs, took up some old bricks from former path to increase space and now am hoping that all the spring bulbs will re-root in bed outside front door.
