    Default Keeping my little.........

    brain cell occupied in the last 4 weeks this is what has happened to my teeny, tiny garden.

    Keeping my little.........-img_0021.jpg

    There was a raised bed plonked in the middle but it's been moved and various bug friendly perennials re homed here and there.

    Weed control then more gravel. I moved the planter with the trellis back and attached pea netting so sugar snaps have a home (my big wall basket broke). I might shove in a crystal lemon Q at the end to see what happens. More gravel means more pot space - Whoop Whoop.

    I'm quite proud of my little veggie section. The bare twig plant in the middle is a bush raspberry.

    The Triffid (rhubarb). I did'nt get round to splitting the crown so I suppose it will take over the corner again.

    Besides this - Charlottes chitting, broad beans potted and constant backache.

    I haven't even got going yet as the weather has been so wet and miserable but this week it's going to get better!

    For me grubbing around in the mud whilst it was raining was very theraputic. I did consider becoming a hippo.

    Looks fab Lumpy.....and if you wanted to split that rhubarb you could do it now. They are really robust and very hard to kill. Water in well...
