The Garden

Well I can only apologise again for another huge gap in the blog posting. That doesn't mean that we haven't been doing anything, just that my camera has broken so I don't have any lovely photos to upload and show off!

So that was before I got an iPad for my birthday from my Wonderful husband. This means that I can now take photos again with the iPad,but just have to work out how to upload them without having to email em to myself first. Hmmm...suggestions gratefully accepted.

Anyways the big exciting news is that complete death trap that is our backyard is now more like a garden. By more like a garden I mean that there are no longer random pits and the whole thing isn't covered in gravel anymore. We had them lay a new patio and a new hard standing in the back for when we get a new shed. We also had them sieve and level the rest of the garden.

So just a reminder of what it looked like when we moved in.

Here's what it looks like now:

The patch in the back has got vegetables and herbs. We'll see if anything grows. Trying out tomatoes, carrots, parsnips and strawberries. We also bought an apple tree and are getting a cherry tree as well. Not bad for a small city garden I would say. The turf comes middle of this week so will put more pictures on soon!!
