Before and After......

So a couple of 'almost' dry days meant I could actually get a decent amount of work done down the allotment.

The 'brassica to be' and sweetcorn

and after!!

The shed and pond area
before and.....


Interior of shed, before

So things are looking better. The wet weather has been liked as much by the weeds as it has by the slugs. Surprisingly with al the weeds we'd had my soil was neither compacted or water logged. Of course I knew this would be the case and had predicted the horrific weather of late and that's why I let the weed situation get so was all to help out the garden..........honest??!!

I managed to fill two green wheelie bins from sorting this lot!!

The shed was really just messy, there were a few jars and bits to go to the bnin but not much else. I was a little upset to go into the shed after emptying it out and finding two baby shrews on the floor, so tiny they hadn't yet opened their eyes. I don't like disturbing nests but just didn't spot it. I just scooped them with some balled up stuff to the side but I doubt Their Mum will come back to them now.

So I still have lots to do and have remembered to take the before shots so I will hopefully be able to show you some more wonderful garden pictures at the weekend. Is your garden growing well in the warmth and rain this year??


  1. You were busy. It's all looking good

  2. Several transformations here, well done you really have been busy. As for the rain it seems that it is swings and roundabouts as to whether the plants have liked it or not. We think the main problem is that the dull days have given so little light that the plants are struggling to grow.

    1. Yeah, I seem to be having the same problems. Everything seemed to be in limbo for a while making them later than usual to produce!


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
