Hello folks and Happy Friday to you all! Thank gawd right?!
I was off today with Dad, and we got the last few bits done before Dad goes back home tomorrow, boo!
First thing we did was measured up the bed so we could make an educated guess on how much compost we would need, then we went off shopping!
We bought a selection of bits from the garden centre (Almondsbury, which is on the outskirts of Bristol) including, membrane for the planters, 15 bags of compost and manure (YES 15) and maybe a couple of extra plants…
After that we treated ourselves to a cake at the fab restaurant at Almondsbury, if you live nearby and you don’t like plants (why the heck are you reading this if you don’t like plants) you should definitely go and have some cake in the restaurant!
Our morning of shopping then took us to Ben’s Reclamation Yard, where Dad went yesterday. To a shop called Treaure Island which is on the same site, where I bought 3 reclaimed stools.
This is them…
Finally we went to B&Q for some paint to upcyle the stools and the we headed in home!
Here is Dad emptying the masses of compost and stinky horse shit into the planters. Now they are full and ready for me to transfer plants into at the weekend.
Last job of the day was a trip to the allotment, where Dad built me a compost heap and paved some of the area around the shed and I finally gave in and did some spraying in attempt to keep the weeds down. Fingers crossed it works!
Good days work for us, and now we are relaxing with a Cider in our local pub garden! That’s the life!
Thanks for reading all, there possibly won’t be another post tomorrow as I have truly ran out of words. But the next post won’t be far off! Promise 🙂
