The week from hell.

It's been a horrible few weeks for me. . My sweet dog became very ill & passed away. I miss her so much.

She was a very great digger. Usually in the middle of my lawn or flower beds. I would look out the window & see a shower of dirt flying in the air. She didn't get a chance to get down the plot with me, too many thorns with the brambles, was waiting until it was all dug over & safe for her.

I had got half of the whole plot dug over & sorted all ready to take her down this year. 

I have dug over the top patch, where the broccoli was last year. Will put the sweetcorn in here this year. I have ordinary ones & I also have bought some red & some black sweetcorn. Will be fun to see if they are actually coloured or if I've been "had". They were cheap enough if I have been.

I have planted the garlic & onions in this bed, covered with straw & hay. I have had to weed as the wheat or barley, whatever the straw was made from, had started to grow too.

This bed is for my fruit. Raspberries, yellow, black & red ones, summer & autumn fruiting. Also the strawberries.

Blueberries, Gooseberries & currants. 

Full length dug over & covered with horse poop, bunny poop & hay. The path has been done down the middle.

This was all before the storm hit. We have had very high winds & I haven't been able to get down there until today. Unfortunately I was met by this..... 

The greenhouse had been lifted by the winds & most of the plastic panes have been blown out. Most have been collected but there are about 3 missing, one I can see but can't reach beyond the railings by the railway line. I just hope it doesn't blow onto it.

I'm hoping my luck changes very soon.
