Greenhouse is up

Phew, what a week. We had lovely sun last week & it was very hard work getting all the sand & pavers down to the plot. This week it's much colder & very windy but I cracked on.


I got the whole frame up on my own, it took a bit figuring out how it went together & I was one piece missing but knew it was a home somewhere (finally found it). I have 10 plastic panes on order, will need some more but in bigger sizes.


I dug over a bit more, so many bramble roots. All the weeds are starting to grow again. I have some cardboard down & will be getting more. Some of the tree stumps are starting to grow so I can now see most of them are Sycamore. They will come out eventually

Building the greenhouse

I have a few days off work so managed to get down to the plot. Luckily the weather has got so much better, it was 26C according to the car temp.

I had to make several runs down there, first with the wood planks & then with the sand, but i got it sorted. Tomorrow I will take the paving slabs to lie on top.


 I expect I will find a few gifts left by the local cats by the time I get back down tomorrow.


I got a few rows of potatoes in, it wasn't easy as I broke my spade.


This is only one of the bramble roots I have had to dig out. There are loads more.

Hopefully I will be able to pick up some cardboard to cover the end of the plot soon.
