Hi new gardening freinds


This is going to be a double learning interest, because I am trying to learn how to use this computer aswell as learning more things about gardening. I have tried to put a picture in ADD PHOTOS ……I don’t think it worked. It also takes along time for me to write (this little bit as taken 10 mins so far)
I am going to take some snapshots of my small garden tomorrow, and try to show them when I have found out how to add them to my journal. It is too late now tonight (8:30 pm) to take any.
I have re-found my enthusiasm to do my garden again. Although I’m saying gardening it realy is just greenhouse gardening and anything that will grow in pots. I cannot do too much too fast 10 mins activity 30 mins sit down. You get the picture, pain killers some times work wonders, some times not…..
Thats enough woe is me, now to My Garden, in it I have a 20×8 grenhouse which unfortunatly it has not been used as a greenhouse for about 5 years,so you can imagine what sort of mess it was in. Over the last few weeks I have been getting it ready for the start of next year. There is now a home built propergater with a secondary warm bed for the colder days both with under heating and fully controlable.On the opposite side and all down that side of the G/H. is some staging with a slim shelf a little higher than the main shelf and nearer to the glass,and all is easily watered with aflick of a switch. so as not to put rubbish on these shelves I put some annuals and other plants in pots to keep it something like G/H untill next year Thats enough for now i’ll try to add some more with some photos….see you all franktf4

Hi Frank and welcome to GoY, to add photo's you have to click the 'Add photo's' link at the top right hand corner of your homepage, it then takes you to another page and you will see a 'browse' button, click that and choose the picture from your own folder on your computer and click 'open' that will transfer the image onto the page in http form, after that you can add a title and a comment in the white box'es below, and then scroll down to the bottom and you will see a 'submit' button click that and you should have just uploaded a picture hopefully.

Welcome to GoY. I hope you enjoy it and I shall look forward to your photos when you put them on, and more blogs too .

Hi, Frank.
I am new to this site also and admire your photos. The greenhouse looks a brilliant set up. During winter you will still be able to do your gardening despite the cold. The front garden is a beautiful sight.
