In the greenhouse.

The lowered bed in the greenhouse.

The lowered bed in the greenhouse.

The first stage of the lowering of the greenhouse bed was started earlier in the week.[late on Monday night].

Now the tubs have been removed and that will allow me another 20-30cm in height or there abouts.

Today i will prepare the beds with some flower pot wells and this will let water travel faster to the roots when called upon during the year.

The area will be attacked again up until lunchtime,and then out to the vegetable garden.

You have plenty to keep you busy by the sounds of it. Good luck with the plans for the day.

Hi John,

 Dave here, Just signed up ...You may now call me the one and only Compostman!!

 I fend off slugs and rabbits !

 Any way i have the pen where i used to keep my Hens,

 I picked up golden wonder seed plants today and dried seed of carrots, Onions,

 and parsnips.

 I fancy some strawberries John , Can you reccommend where to get plants and when to plant them please , And is an old tyre good to grow them in?

      I actually was someone do this but is it really good enough?

                                  Cheers John , Dave
