G is for …. Gardening #LindasA-Z

The most polite thing to say about the garden of the new house when we moved in was that it had “potential”. I’m not quite sure why we didn’t take photos of it before we started work on it, but it was a mess. Hopefully we’re going the right way to do something about that…

Not many words this post (hurray!) as I thought I’d do a monthly garden update from now on (in theory) so I have something to look back on when I’m wondering what the heck we did when last year. So these are the photos from today.

I’ve planted lots of herbs this evening so hopefully they’ll end up in the planter dad built for us. Did misread one of the packets and thought I was going to be growing something far more foxy than Basil Bush though!

Here’s how it’s looking as a whole now, thanks to all Kev’s hard work over the past weeks. He’s a star!
