Garden plans!

Gosh this month is going to be awful... I wish i would just skip it completely and move onto April... I have THREE whole weeks off!!!! Ok so ill still have to work work work.... but at least I should be able to spend a bit of time in the garden! And blimey does it need it! It's a MESS!!!

So the plan of things to do:

  • Level the back of the garden and lay the slabs. 
The chicken coop arrived on Wednesday, so all I need to do now is find some time to sort it all! Probably not looking at getting the actual chicken till easter... fitting I guess!

Free feeder and drinker... Cheap and cheerful so I think Ill be replacing these but not too bad for a back-up!

Part 1 and 2 out of 3, the other is in the lounge as it wouldn't fit in the shed!

  • Pick up all the cat poo (and maybe shoot a few cats if I catch the buggers!).

  • Dig up all the random primroses that have cropped up all over the place and re-plant them in some sort of order.

Although as I write this I am being told off by mother dearest, telling me I should leave them where they are because they are pretty. So maybe ill think about that one...

  • Take up some more of the stones which have been put down underneath the rose bush (see a couple of posts ago). 
I'm thinking that i can plant some viola there which will spread like wild fire but will cover the mud nicely - I don't want to put loads of plants down there as the rose is the main attraction if you see what I mean!

  • Plant some seeds.
All the ones I planted in the winder didn't survive so ill try some more. I would quite like to get one of those Mini greenhouse shelved things... I know what I mean!

  • Grow some more grass. 
Obviously not on the scale I tried last time but there is still an awful lot to do! Specially around the compost bin and theres a large patch that is mainly moss too... Maybe ill invest in some garden netting to stop the birds getting at it. They are starting to show their little faces again - a gorgeous little robin sat watching me through the winow this morning! Definately more interesting than doing the washing up!

I'm sure theres loads more I was thinking of too but my mind has gone blank, probably due to the two glasses of (rather stong) damson wine! It's very nice.... hic!
