The front garden is almost done, a couple of hours finishing the bit under the window and all will be ready for planting.
The back has has a good inroad made, most of the retaining wall and the bed on top has been cleaned up, just an hour left to do.
The potatoes in pots have all been topped up with compost and will just need a regular drink now.
I have got the last of the sweet peas in with some twiggy sticks to help them start their climb up the arch. I will be removing the tendrils and tying them in, my Grandfather did this so the flower stems grew straight.
The greenhouse had a good check over and watering, I had to pot on some of the Balconi tomatoes as they were bursting out of the pots. They are now in their final pots but will stay inside at night as the temperatures are still in single figures.
One of my compost makers is already half full and I now have 3 stacks of turf, green side down, covered to break down into loam. That will be a welcome addition to the beds next year.
I took a photo of the old apple tree next door, last year there was hardly a blossom on it and no fruit.
I had to take it over the fence as the garden is just a rubbish tip, but I will probably liberate some of the fruit. I may have to invest in some thigh high leather boots though, perhaps I will just wear my long waterproof coat and leggings.
Ben had a bath and came out on the grass to dry off.
He starts off in the middle of his towel.
Then starts to "swim" around.
Finally he settles down and then lies in the sun until dry, in bad weather or just cold days he is quite happy to have the hairdryer, just as long as he can lay down for it.
That is it for my day so far, I have some hand sewing again this evening and my fingers are crossed for another fine day tomorrow.
There should have been a change in the weather this afternoon but it has stayed glorious, the sun is still warm so Ben and I are going for a little walk.
