Wednesday, 15 May 2013

Planting has begun!

A good day was had on Saturday with much garden progress, highlights include:
  • Weeding the beds and planting tomatoes and courgette plants.
  • Jerusalem archichoke have come again from last year, so weeded around to and moved to give space  
  • Planted mangetout pea seeds along chain link fence bounary
  • Laid second brick path up into Sue Godfrey garden 
  • Variety of herb seeds sown in the herb bed 
  • Tree pit for the plum tree dug 
  • Bee and insect houses hung from the trees and shrubs (made of bamboo)  
And the REALLY good, is that we finally have a date for when Thames Water will connect the new tap... Saturday 24th May... so soon we will have water!

2013 gardening is GO!!

Wonky Prong 2013 got off to a cracking start today with a cold day of gardening action fuelled by freshly baked warm chocolate and banana muffins (thanks John!)

This is what it looked like at 11am:

And here's what happened between:

Cecily, Dan and Martin drank tea enjoying the brief moment of sun..

And John drank some tea as well..

And Ama also drank some tea..

Tidying up the Sue Godfrey Garden..

After having removed the chain link fence looks a lot better..

A hive of activity. The bottle greenhouse will go between Cecily and Dan along the back boundary of Sue Godrey Garden (between the green laurel bush and the coppery beach tree)..

New composting area: 2 compost and 1 wormery with new Olive tree to right in foreground..
