Managed to get another trench done yesterday before a certain little person got bored and wanted to go inside! Was hoping to do more today but the weather's packing in and I'm developing a cold, joy :/ We'll get there, eventually. In the meantime Robbie wanted to see a photo of what the garden looks like - here's one from the real estate agent just before we bought the place, so about 3months ago? So you can double the size of the weeds ;) Now I think of it, I should have taken some proper "before" shots of the plots so I can see the difference I make.
The plots are on the right hand side of this picture going down the garden by the fence. The birdhouse and the bean trainer frame (goalpost-y thing on the right hand side) both went with the previous owner sadly, but so did the disgusting old incinerator on the right hand side of the next photo:
The rainwater barrel stayed, luckily, and behind the greenhouses going down the hill is an orchard of about 4-5 old apple trees and a chookhouse.
But as you can see, there's much work to do!
