Week off gardening

Not gotten quite as much done in the last week as I would have thought but we did achieve quite a lot.

Planted a few flowers, creepers and veggies and then tried to get the tree roots out. The stump was only ground down and has left us with a big hole after me trying to get the roots out. Need to get the tree surgeon back to grind it down some more.

Thanks to Paul for his help planting.

Tree Surgery

Now you see it, now you don't.

We had a tree surgeon over today who has removed a couple of trees and shaped a few others. We got loads of logs from the branches and stumps which are going to have to season over the next year.

We've got the week off to do some gardening, so it's a good start to the big picture.

Veggie boxes

Spent most of today assembling and filling wooden boxes which we'll be filling with vegetables.

The boxes are a mixture of top soil, compost and manure. And we'll be planting carrots, peas, French beans, aubergine, lettuce, cucumbers and more. We'll probably run out of space and have to put in another one. Good fun though!

Thanks to Paul & Maz for their help.

New dining room table

Not technically a DIY post but our dining table has finally arrived. Its 6ft, waxed on top and painted below in Farrow & Ball French Grey.

Also got some chairs too, one cava in the same colour and the others in an off white. All have a distressed look to them.

Going to break them in for my birthday dinner tonight with some mates.
