New Raised Bed

The new raised bed is looking good. It has worked out much better than planned size wise as it stretches right across the garden without me having to cut any wood. It did involve a lot of drilling though!
It took most of the day yesterday to get it in place and dig over the ground in it. I've turned the soil over so the grass is facing down and will hopefully die. I was disappointed to see absolutely loads of bindweed roots though in the soil which indicates that I might have a battle on my hands for a little while yet!

Been a gorgeous day today. So hot and sunny. Spent most of the day in the garden doing some planting and general gardening.

Mowed the lawn and did all the edging. Must get some lawn feed and weed soon as the dandelions have taken root in some areas. Got the old rotary lawnmower out the shed to take to the tip. The hover mower is so easy to use although is awkward to clean underneath when the grass is a little wet!

Planted out two courgette plants, butternut squash, Brussels Sprouts, lettuce, rocket, carrots, onions, tomatoes, and a cucumber seedling. Didn't manage to get around to the peas and potatoes!

Snow filled Conwy garden

This was taken last weekend. We've had at least another 5 inches of snow since then!

Merry Christmas

Not done much gardening recently! Too much snow! Everything is frozen and we have had more snow even since this picture was taken.

Butternut Squash

The butternut squash continue to grow but not sure how much more they will grow now.

The dahlia has come into flower. Never seen so many flowers on it as there are this year. It doesn't seem to have been ravaged by the slugs as much!

Had this brilliant kneeler for my birthday. I think it will get plenty of use and help my back!

Have had loads of onions from the garden this year. I'm sure they'll be gone in no time as we use a lot in sauces and other things.

Lazy Sunday

I have mowed the lawn and trimmed it's edges with the strimmer this morning. The grass was wet which made it a bit of a job - I wish now that I had left it until this afternoon as it has dried up nicely now and the sun is shinning. Nevermind.

I have picked more lettuce - enough to keep me in salad at work for the week I should imagine. Also picked the cucumber which will be a nice addition to the salads! There was one courgette on the plants which was a reasonable size - hopefully there will be more to go with it in the week.

Doesn't look like the tomato plants are going to be that productive this year. No tomatoes yet at all. Five of the plant look worse for wear and two look just about okay. Will give it a little longer but would be nice for them to have a blast of sun!

Courgette Plants

The courgette plants have done extremely well in their spot at the bottom of the garden and have become enormous! The variety I have got this year are very prickly - I have not known a courgette plant have so many spines before unless of course it is the size of them?!
