Gardening Diary 🌱 β€” πŸ“… 25th May 2020

After years of neglect we’ve been trying to improve and actually make use of the area of garden behind our house.


I should really have taken some ‘before’ photographs but here are a few details in pictures of progress so far.


Sun terrace πŸ˜€


Oregano bed and compost bin


Thyme planted in a rusty wheelbarrow!


Small raised beds cleared and dug over ready for planting


Greenhouse, which still definitely needs some repair, semi-tidied and an attempt at seed germination started - including basil, coriander, dill, rosemary, sage and tarragon

Rampant mint alongside the greenhouse


Chives and bay in two of the raised beds


Garage newly painted and starting to get some decoration


Buttercups flourishing alongside the garage

Meanwhile, for some rest and relaxation time, at the front of the house the weather has now been good enough to string up the hammock.
