I'm amazed I actually have some lettuce,beans, herbs, tomatoes, cucumber and courgette plants growing. It may sound rather paltry, but given we're living in a building site, I'm amazed that I've managed that. It's the start of the experiment about where things can grow. My OH poo-pooed the place I've wanted to put them because its north east and under trees, so a bit shady (it's not in the shadow of the house though, so some of it gets the late morning and some the afternoon sun). But, actually, things do grow there. Main thing is its the most sheltered place in the garden. The wind is our Achilles heel here. Apart from the dell (shade loving plants only) most of the other plants (trees and shrubs) blow horizontal in the winds....
Spent yesterday painting the chicken hut a fetching scheme of peacock blue and American barn red before its put together. Very tempted to get a trio of Norfolk Greys to go with the Jersey Giant chicks....

Put in an offer for this garden (with a tatty bungalow attached) yesterday. Got to wait until Monday to find out if offer accepted. Its nail biting. Always wanted a bigger garden. I can have chucks again, and a pond. Its a blank canvas really, and if it all comes off it will keep DH busy for a while (poor chap he is not a natural gardener)

Not sure if congratulations are in order, but might buy a bottle of bubbly in the hope that the rest of the purchase process goes smoothly? To break open on completion?
