I’m close to a year behind with these posts – eek! But I also know that, courtesy of feeling distinctly below-par for a lot of last year, there won’t be huge numbers of photos to post. But let’s get stuck in anyway! I have a suspicion the order the photos appear in this blog is from oldest to newest – such is the way…
Chris suited and booted for an interview – alas he got pipped at the post, but he’s got himself a nice suit now!
The tatties coming along nicely
Far end of the tattie bed (welsh onions a-plenty) with the raspberry canes in the background
This year’s leek bed (last year’s potato bed, not that you’d know…)
Squash! Actually, I think these might be the courgettes – but you get the idea
Potted on parsley – most of this got noshed by the deer, but we did get some enjoyment from them. They’re on the wall just outside the back door
I’d forgotten why I’d taken this photo…until I spotted the amazing perfectly-dry spots under the wooden supports. Weather is awesome!
Yum! Salad almost exclusively from the garden (notwithstanding the sun dried tomatoes and seeds)
The lawnmower gets serious use and this year we needed a replacement cable – ordered it OK but fitting it was a bit of a nightmare. Got there in the end tho’!
Trusty mower: the motor cage has now fallen off completely (courtesy of the bolts holding it in shaking out) but the machine still goes like the (very slow) clappers
Mowing in progress – view from our bedroom window
Ah, the feet photos. These trainers have been around for a good while now and are one of my favourite mowing footwear options
The grass really is super-lush in May! This is the top of the damson triangle near the southern edge of our land
More mowing, this time down in the Old Vegetable Garden
Looking down towards the row of ash we are (slowly) pollarding for fuel
Jason looking terribly pleased with himself (a very common occurrence)
I acquired a sofa. It didn’t fit in the car. Volume wasn’t the issue: getting it *INTO* the vehicle was. So I bought some roof bars. And tied it on myself. And it didn’t fall off. Winner!
