Getting started 2009 - week 1


Well some progress has been made – Have employed friend’s son to do digging – I can’t – broke my elbow! Husband also unable to dig due to dodgy hip – but he can prune (which I also can’t do) so native hedge has been severly pruned (before the birds start nesting) Have bought all seeds except was able to get T&M Half Pint peas or salad blue potatoes

If you just do a little bit at a time it's surprising how far you'll get . I hope your elbow is better soon.
