Forum home The potting shed

A little showing off and a big thank you







 A few photos of my garden today and although I say so myself,  I think it is looking fantastic, better than it ever has done (except for the grass which isn't my department and always looks like that!!)

My veg patch is more ready than it ever has been at this time of year, ready for sowing next weekend and my fruit bushes are coming along great....thanks to the feed I've given them no doubt.

My new borders look better than I thought they would and can't wait until summer for all the colour.

And as for my GH, well really that speaks for itself and will be full of tomatoes and cucumbers in a few months.

So, sorry for showing off but thank you to everyone who has put up with all my questions and given me advice.  I love my new found hobby and can't wait for the coming months image

    Well, you've given me a right good idea there with having that drawer unit in the greenhouse - brilliant idea for storing all the twine, and a pair of scissors, and the small tools/pots etc.  Will be looking out for similar!  Wish our shed looked that tidy too.  Your garden has that ready to go look about it - like it's all under control.  It looks like you don't have to take the picture from certain angles to omit all the rubbishy bits (ahem!) either.  And the greenhouse looks impossibly clean!  I sometimes think this is the best time of the year with all the anticipation of stuff to come.  Well done - you are rightly proud. xx

    Thanks Bee, it only looks tidy because I spent a weekend tidying it the other week before I started the green house and repainted the fences behind the GH and the shed image In previous years I have just done a bit and hoped for the best, I am trying to be more well prepared this year.

    The drawer unit was an old one of the boys, it is great for bits and bobs as you said, the middle drawer is full if my hand tools and the too one bulbs waiting to be planted and labels of plants that have gone in image Ooooooh, I do love it image

    I think Verdun is right though.  Let's face it, tidying up and getting things organised is a man's job, rather like cleaning the toilets.  Women have more important things to do.

    Actually, now you come to mention it Verdun, I did have some help from my OH and son #1 so can't really take all the credit, although I did most of the glazing myself. Anyway, I'm not a girl, I'm a Lady image

    Bee???  I clean the toilets, OH wouldn't do it properly image

    That's my Daisy Ryan, she's my baby girl image I have another too but he is just out of shot.
