Our annual event…

in the garden!

We don't have much of a garden, which is just as well considering my gardening skills - or lack of! We haven't touched it all winter so after lunch yesterday we decided, on a whim to go and buy some new plants. Of course, that meant we had to clean up the mess and pull up all the weeds before we could get potting plants…

Hopefully we have made a better choice this time! We did try the square foot garden way but it wasn't all it was cracked up to be and so we have ditched that system. Succulents seem to fair quite well under my gardening regime so I was all for just filling the garden with them but hubby wasn't having any of it! We did get a fair few and I put my foot down regarding marigolds - we always buy them and within a week they have been eaten!

Ebi-kun refuses to get rid of his first bike so we are attempting to turn it into a garden feature! Hmm yeah, we will see how that goes! I want to have a basket on the back with some flowing kinda flowers in it (you can see my garden skills shin through, I am clueless about plant names!)

The other hardcore plant we have got is the rosemary, which all went a bit mental last year, hubby cut it back to about 1/4 of it's size, we need to keep it under control, we still have lemon balm popping up everywhere after that crazy experiment. So the centre box is now all herbs and the big box is a bit of a hodge podge. We found a blackberry plant and rhubarb… yeah I know, what were we thinking! At least it is looking a bit tidier, this time of year it is nice to sit out during the day and now most of the kids are in school, it is pretty peaceful too!
