Good evening beautiful souls,
I’ve had a busy day at work today and when I got home I decided to make the most of the last rays of sun and do some gardening. I can’t wait to have the garden looking all nice, but it’s going to be a long process till it’s where I want to be. I just bought some vegetable seeds and am excited to get planting however I need to prepare the soil first in our first vegetable patch and then build another raised vegetable patch too.
Anyway, there’s not much to be seen yet I guess, the changes are subtle, but I wanted to share the progress on mine and Jessica’s garden project so far. Here’s the before and afters:
Apart from the addition of a tomato and pepper plant there’s not much of a difference here yet. But the plan is to paint this shelf green and the remove every second shelf to make more room for tall plants. Next I also want to plant flowers or maybe more herbs in the little baskets next to the stairs; I’m not sure yet. It’s a bit broken and was left in the garden from the previous owner of this house, but with a bit of sprucing up I think it’ll look great.
In our bin area we just swept the ground and cleared it of all the small rubbish that was left from the house renovation before we moved in. However there are, as you can see, still some old blind rails and the like which need to go to the tip and as neither Jessica or I can drive we’re going to have to wait till someone can get rid of them for us. The plan for this are is to rid it of everything bar the bins and then add a little greenhouse in the right hand corner.
Again this area doesn’t look nice yet, or as if much has been done, but de-weeded the soil and I loosened it before adding the slab stones at the back instead of the array of uneven stones. This will be our salad patch probably.
Lastly, I moved the bird table onto the pebbled area and put the tree pot in another place too. The plan for this area is to build another raised vegetable patch where our little potted rhubarb plant is now standing.
So as you can see, we’ve only started with little improvements so far, but I am so excited for when it will all be finished because I think it will look really nice. Hopefully we can paint the fences again and power wash the pavement to really give the finished look a nice fresh clean touch.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our garden plans. I shall be keeping you updated!
Has anyone else got any big garden projects planned this year?! I’d love to know!
Love Carina xo
