Originally Posted by VirginVegGrower Spent two solid days in the garden under the sun. Dug out old fencing and put in rosa rugosa hedging. Planted orchard of apple trees, pears and plum.

Had BBQ and hot bath. Now time to read the Sunday papers!

Painted the other half of my greenhouse today whilst listening to the radio all day and burning my shoulders. Painted a coldframe tonight until I could see it no more. Chooks came out into the garden with me and stripped my wild garlic - newly planted - grrrr!

Painted half of the outside of my lovely greenhouse which is done in "clay" colour - looks beautiful! As I type OH is sanding the other half, lit by the quarter moon. I want the warm weather tomorrow so I can get it finished.
