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!
