Plans into action!


By sueb


I have been unable to do much in the garden since April 08 following a mishap with my foot (damaged my Achilles tendon ouch!) January this year I had an operation to put the problem right this kept me off my feet for 11weeks. This gave me plenty of time to spend on GoY and plan my veg garden. This weekend the plans finally came into action

This is what it looked like

The boss at work

plans into action

all done

My birthday tree from my son

The boss was pleased to go back to work for a rest!!!

I thought you were the boss :o)
Your raised beds look great. I bet the vegies will taste great too.

Thank you all for your kind comments. The beds are almost fully planted now and we have added a cage to the bed next to the greenhouse to keep the birds off pigeons keep attacking my lettuce.
Hywel ~ he is the boss I’m she whom must be obeyed! Lol

Craftnutter ~ I am very good at “working “ out things for him to do ~I managed to break the shower last night I’m not very popular today we were planning to rip out the shower room and redo it but not just yet ……we are now!!

Mookins Llew and Gilli ~ thanks the foot is as good as it’s going to get I am very limited to how long I can say on it. It’s something I coming to terms with but very slowly I will not be able to go back to work in horticulture which has upset me greatly. Got to rethink things. I keep smiling though! :0)

Sue, it is a shame that you still have trouble with your foot. I'm so sorry you won't be able to go back to working in horticulture. That must be very difficult for you. Good to hear you are smiling through though!! :o)

Oooops! Lol! Our shower just leaked, so we had to have that lil' room redone, cost £2000! Worth it tho', the new shower is heaven! Feels like warm raindrops! Hehe!

Thanks ladies, Life dumps on you sometimes but hay what’s the point in being down on yourself as long as I can do my own garden I’m gonna be happy.
As for the shower room may be we could go green and recycle watering can a piece of string and a broom handle……Lovely!!!
