So a couple of days ago, I got outside with the kids and started clearing and sorting out all my pot plants that I stored at the side of the house as last summer we started to paint the deck. We didn't quite finish painting it...things came up and the weather turned to crap and winter snuck up on us...so this summer we WILL finish painting it.
I got mr 13 to put the plum tree I bought, into the ground. Fingers crossed it gives us some fruit in the next few years - at the very least it will give us some nice shade from the summer sun!
I have bought some vege seedlings, hubby cleared all the weeds from the vege plot - HE just needs to get in and turn it over, add some compost and then I'l be ready to plant :)
As we aren't going anywhere (overseas) this summer, I am keen to get mr 9 a watermelon plant growing. We bought a seedling last year...it grew...we watched it with pride and excitement....a couple of months later - we realised it was a cucumber!! Mr 9 was sooo gutted! So this time around we have bought watermelon SEEDS - no chance of someone swapping labels at the garden shop!
Will try and get some pics of the vege garden in the next few days (before/after and progress pics type pics) It's nothing much, we only have a REALLY small vege patch and I don't have the best green finger in town, but I do try
