The Victory Garden Project- July 13

I removed debris and a large pile of old thorny bushes/branches to clear this area for my poly greenhouse

It’s been a scorcher here today..

Despite the heat I really wanted to clear the area of the large pile of cut thorn bushes and debris so I can put in my small plastic greenhouse when it is delivered on Monday. I’m excited to get my “Victory Garden” up and running and hopefully provide some vegetables over winter. It’s been quite a long time since I grew a veggie garden so I’ve a lot to learn but that’s half the fun of it!

I resurrected two composters that I found in an overgrown area of the garden. I've also found lots of pots filled with weeds which I am going to utilize!

So I’ve just come in from 2 hours outside in a sun trap, thoroughly dirty, unattractively sweaty with thorn bush twigs in my hair but I just had to write this and share my enthusiasm before my second shower of the day beckons.

I’m then off down the road, walking to the shops. I’ve decided to try and live my life without a car for as long as possible. It’s a major expense so I’m putting it off… who knows, I may not ever need one!

Tomorrow the Hobbits and I are taking the bus to Woodview Farm which is just a few miles from our house to attend an “Iron Age Roundhouse Open Day”. I’m really looking forward to it!
