A pane in the glass

I heard a loud crash in the night a few days ago. This morning I found out what it was. Two sheet of glass had fallen out of my greenhouse. I need to repair it this weekend but I am not sure whether to use real glass or polycarbonate. Which is best I wonder?

What a nice butt!

The sun was shining for a while this morning. I thought I'd better make the most of it and do something useful in the garden. It seems to be raining most of the time at the moment, so as it was dry, I installed two water butts.

They've been lying around for a while and I know I am going to need their precious bounty this summer. Let's just hope they stay full all year. I feel satisfied with a job well done and hopefully it will save money on my water bills as well as helping the environment a little.

Hurry up Spring

I wish the warm weather would hurry up and arrive. I can't wait to be back out in the garden. I miss sitting in the sun admiring the flowers. I'm going stir crazy at the moment. So come on spring "pull your finger out".

Rhubarb rhubarb

Things are beginning to happen in the garden at last. Last week I covered up my rhubarb with my home-made cloche. To my amazement, when I looked again today there were signs of life.
The beautiful pink buds are poking through the soil and will soon be the focus of my veg patch again.
 Bring on the Crumble!
