Re: Early Summer bits and bobs - 2018

My gardening is a bit on hold due to injuring my hamstring muscle, been over a week now and still limping about, luckily we've had some rain, so only the greenhouse needs care, the lawns need cutting but they'll have to wait.

Re: Early Summer bits and bobs - 2018

Apart from some tatties having the tops snapped off, we look to have come through quite well, the Beech hedge planted a couple of years ago certainly helped protect the raised beds.
