lots of building work to make it big enough!! But when I saw the fireplaces and sash windows, nothing else would do...
I planted a cherry tree and an apple tree, the apple tree and has no fruit on it, and this little red cherry was eaten by a bird! (this was taken a week ago and now nearly all the cherries are red so I am going to net the tree so the greedy birds don't get them all!)Again a week ago, this was what my little veggie bed looked like...a week on and you can't see the soil any longer. (you can see the sorry looking new apple tree on the left!)
We left it too late for planting so its all a bit random so next year I will start earlier and follow a guide I think. I have this Delia book that shows you how to plant a square foot garden - which maximises the space.
The tomatoes are doing well.... (not bothered if they don't all go red, I'll just make green tomato chutney!)
And......patience is a virtue obviously!! My pathetic strawberries are now looking like this .........well a week ago they were!! They went in the Pimms at the weekend :)
