General garden maintenance

General garden maintenance

After a few weeks of rain it’s finally been dry for the last few days, and we’ve been trying to make the most of it. The sun was out today so the afternoon was spent outside having a general tidy up. There seems to be an incredible amount of small fallen branches around the property which all need picking up and we removed bricks and old logs from the temporary fire-pit we setup for bonfire night.

The "allotment"

The "allotment"

One of our requirements when looking at properties was enough outside space to be able to grow our own fruit and veg. We have a long term dream of being self sufficient as far as possible so this was especially important to us. At our old house in Hove we had a small but productive veg patch then took on an allotment with friends a few years ago from which we enjoyed a couple of great years and delicious produce.
