Its been a hectic couple of weeks at the new house.
Ceilings have gone in and the outer walls have been drylined to create a cavity. Dining room (above left), second bedroom (above right) and main bedroom (right) are looking much better - the rooms are actually starting to look like somewhere you would like to live in.! They just need a coat of plaster and some paint.
My vegetable garden is doing really well. I have cabbages, sprouts, Pak choi, garlic, onions and parsnips in one lot of beds, peas and beans with marrows in another, pototoes, sweetcorn, courgettes and pumpkins.
I am trying the "hanging basket" tomatoes this year so as to save space in the greenhouse for the normal upright ones. My first two packets of tomato seeds didn't germinate so I planted two more. I reused some of the compost for other things. Now of course all of the new tomatoes have germinated, plus I have tomatoes popping up with everything else - that will teach me to reuse compost!
More to follow......
