Big changes to our garden

Gardening

garden as it wasWhen we moved in last year the garden was very different. As you can see the top was all lawn, there was a tatty old garden shed and on the right was a huge pine that blocked the light and shed needles everywhere. Nothing really suited what we wanted. Since then the shed has been demolished ( a new one is arriving on Friday ), the tree has been felled and the old lawn has been rotovated and deep beds for vegetables have been created.

We have planted cherry trees, gooseberries , strawberries and we are getting ready for the spring plantings. I’m going to try some well chitted potatoes in grow bags this weekend as a experiment. We should be able to find a couple of sheltered frost free spots for them.

As you can see by comparing the top picture with the one below we have made lots of changes
