Here is the garden post I promised. Mam and Dad decided to get some landscapers in and rip up some of the flagstones out front and have a new fence. I should have taken a before and after picture but I didn't get the camera out in time so here is a 'during' picture.
I've kind of caught the bug this year and decided to plant Carrots, Leeks, Lettuce, Parsnips, a Cherry tree, a Blueberry bush, Honeysuckle, Sweet Peas and thats about it so far. Oh and some radom flowers I cant remember the name of.
I bought a seed shelving unit thing with a plastic cover because I tried to grow some flowers form seed last year in the shed and it was a disaster. But the plastic frame thing seems to be working see below...lettuce
I'm rather pleased at how well they are doing. I also planted the Cherry tree a while ago and it's opened out quite nicely. But i think the blueberry bush has suffered some frost damage.
Any tips anyone has would be greatly appreciated as I'm a nooooob.
Love and germination.
