It's starting to look nice now!

As some of my mylto friends may know I have started to have my garden re vamped! It is now starting to really take shape! My fence is all but done bar one panel as we need an extra post and I have started diging out the area for the base for where the shed will go. I yesterday received my mosaic tiles to use on the paving area which are just a perfect colour! I am sat indoors today though as due to rain I am going it give it a miss - I don't like to get too much mud inside the house and with 3 dogs and rain it is near impossible! Are you starting or already started any gardening projects?

I've just this week started making a concerted effort on the garden I got when I moved 15 months ago! It's rewarding, but panicky - I keep digging bilbs up and having to replant them. Also, I can't get the spade or fork in the ground cos it's so compacted and root bound! I think I need a mini cultivator before I can do any serious planting.

I was really busy this year and I was going to go without a garden but I yearned for one. So I sent for some seeds and got a really late start. (I always start from seeds. The yield is never as good when I buy plants.) Anyway, I probably won't have any veggies until August this year but I'll have Brandywine tomatoes, Chadwick cherry tomatoes, peppers, string beans, cantalope and herbs.

We are still having to much frost to start planting. Yesterday was 75 but this morning it is 34, I can't plant until the last week of May and I have been so busy with my ducks that I haven't even planned.

Good for you! Last year I planted a few things in containers and beside the house as I was just renting and really couldn't have a garden. I just bought my house about two months ago and vowed I would have a good garden this year, but it's not going to happen. The house needs too much work and I just don't have the time to plan a nice garden, but I may put in something small, 2-3 tomatoes, a cucumber or two, maybe a small row of snap peas. I have perennials growing everything, tho!

I know what you mean! We decided to make a start on the garden first so that then the dogs can be outside more and then we can redecorate inside. Hopefully I plan to have the majority done by summer so then we can enjoy it with just general looking after flowers and maintenance then! x

We're having an early spring here, so I've got all of my garden started already. Even the tomatoes and peppers are out. It's been windy the last couple of days, though, so they're not too happy about that. We dug up a little more to expand one area, and planted some rhubarb and Jerusalem artichokes in other spots. Every year a little more of the back yard goes to growing food! Soon there won't be a back yard at all, just a garden. :)
