    paint the new stand by hen coop,
    secure edges in the net brassica cage,as this will be the tempary run,
    move a logganberry and supports,
    lay some slabs,dismantel chicken run and rebuild to fit the new area,
    when the now chicken area is cleared,put up polytunnel,and get ready for the seed sowing,i might add that i will be having some help along the way,am sure that little lot is more than enough for now,all weather depending.
    Another nutter ,wife,mother, nan and nanan,love my growing places,seed collection and sharing,also one of these

    Iíve just got one half of a mound to make, dig the ground 4ft x12ft, then dig a path on one side and throw that on top, Iíve got some old muck and Iíll put some of that on and cover it with weed membrane, the whole bed will be my main winter brassica bed.

    Picture? I know what a saw horse is, but a bread tray saw horse?

    Meanwhile, I see I added to this thread not much more than a week ago. I'd forgotten! Looks like the jobs are still the same, though progress has been made on some.
    Note to self: Getting too old not to have a life.

    I want to see the bread tray saw horses too! I imagine these brown plastic trays with fairly high sides, stood on end leaning against each other, but I can't envisage how that's useful for sawing anything lol Curious!
