Personal update

You  may be wondering why I deleted the two care home pages from my blog

well unfortunately when they were doing their checks for me to became a volunteer under the homes umbrella it turns out that their is something  on my records which happen over 30 years ago means I can not remain as a volunteer any more  for ether care home  I think the dogs will be happy to have me home with them and  it means  I can slowly  get my garden’s looking good and growing more vegetables and fruit & flowers

WEEKEND SORT OUT

Well I am sure you have had the same problem when you’re fighting to squeeze things into your wardrobe and draws well both David and I decided we would have a short out and see what fitted or just two smalls for us so what we did not want was taken to the local charity shops we choose a children’s charity this time but cannot remember the name shoes also went that did not fit us as well.

That was Saturday

 

On Sunday, we went to do a wee bit of shopping and see his parents as they lived around the corner from the shop that we did our shopping and I treated myself to a new garden fork and some new compost that I have not tried before.

WHY COMPOST

Well it stops a lot of items going to landfill site and not many of us can afford a brown bin

brown bin

As you see being used here and what when you think of the price off them and shop bought compost these day here are my own bins below

The photo above is compost tea juice that comes out the bottom of this one I have an oblong container and a round one to collect the juices

 

Have 2 of these one is empty but fits nicely over my round ones as there are smaller than this one so gives double heat to the bin inside

Plus knowing that you can put your own home-made compost back on your own garden beds and knowing you have only taken a few steps to do it without buying it from the local store or used petrol to collect it.

Mixing browns and greens together and cutting it up small also helps or chopping it up and keep moist.

as the worms only have small mouths

when I know it going to rain I open my bin lids as natural rain is better than a hose pipe or water from the tap

enjoy your gardens and keep composting until next time

FEELING SAD

Why you might ask well my landlord does not like wildflowers

so the other day i had a note through the door asking for them to be moved

I had started trying to move the grasses only  but that was not good enough

so here is the border before I had started

So not sure what to do now  as not sure what would be best to do apart from putting  black sacks or membrane down the grown is very hard still to dig

have a blessed week and enjoy your gardens
