Pinterest envy…

it is a well known fact around here that I have the green fingers and the brains when it comes to the allotment and gardening in general… BUT and that is a big but, I need to tell you that my dear husband is the best assistant one could wish for….I plan and he delivers…..so…a while back I showed him a few pics that I had saved on my pinterest board to do with guttering growing….I was thinking that I could hang them up in the greenhouse thus maximising the space etc etc….long story short last weekend I got my wish…only the guttering was more of a drainage pipe cut in half…LOL….he tries but as he tells me he has to work with what he’s got….LOL….wanna see them…here they are…

Wishing you all a peaceful and productive weekend,

Salaams y hasta la vista,

Strawberries…

my strawberries were doing just fine until Picasso, our cat .took to digging them out and generally playing on that part of the raised bed…aaagghhh…..so we’ve had to plant in a few more plants and put up a horrid net over the whole bed….also, we are planting a few in hanging baskets and we will be doing a bit of a comparison exercise to see which method is more productive…the problem I anticipate with the ones in the baskets is the propagating part…oh well…I’ll figure something out….the cat stays for now 😉
