I've just come in from the garden for a well earned rest after spending most of the week getting the veg plot sorted out. Hubby's had the week off and we've been busy with lots of things. I finally got the last 3 beds dug over and weeded while he got on with making my obelisks for the sweet peas. He used the instructions Here though he used slightly slimmer wood and made the tops himself on his lathe.
I'm painting them with Cuprinol garden shades "Winter Well" which I got mixed specially in Homebase. It's a really pretty summery colour, like a paler version of Beaumont blue. 2 done, 2 to go! I'm really chuffed at how they've turned out and at only about £10 each for the wood and screws, a lot cheaper than some I've seen for sale!
Most days this week it's been really foggy and chilly all morning but beautiful once the sun came out.
I've also planted the onions, shallots and garlic and sown seeds for tomatoes, peppers and aubergine for the greenhouse. Hubby tidied the front hedge, giving me lots of pea sticks and poles for my rustic bean supports.
So, all in all a very tiring but satisfying week I'll finish painting the obelisks tomorrow and plant the strawberry plants I bought today, then I really ought to catch up with the laundry and tidy the house :(
Hope you're all enjoying the spring sunshine
