We still have alot to do in the garden. When we moved in it was so overgrown. We moved here in March - and so did the rain! Mr H was in the middle of Vintage (wine industry busy season) so we were'nt going to see much of him till May - then we had an overseas holiday and a road trip and then Winter was well underway. So we have really only started sorting out the garden over the last few weeks.
|Our fence line borders the vineyard - I would like to plant lemon and lime trees along the vineyard fence.|
|Beautiful day! The vines are just starting to bud.|
Over the past few weekends we have been doing alot of weeding.
Mr H has cleared one half of our soon to be vege patch. Weedmat and riverstones have been put down. We will use this half for a table and chairs or a possible playhouse that we are looking at getting for the boys.
Even just having half of the old vege patch still makes for a huge space to fill. The weeds here were about 6 foot high when we moved in! I can't wait to get the soil turned over and to start planting.
Along the back of the house is a long line of Rosemary. I have been using alot of this recently when cooking lamb and adding it in with the roast potatoes.
Wine barrels for herbs - already and waiting to be filled and planted.
The large green raised boxes will be for Tom's strawberry plants - this kid lovesssss strawberries.
There is still a huge chicken coop to clear and planting along the front of the house. Lots to do!
This lovely big tree is at the front of our property. I can't wait till it is green and leafy again. It will provide some much needed shade over the hot summer months.
What's happening in your backyard at the moment?
