March 10th is a big day in my life. It’s my birthday (presents and cake welcome if you’re that way inclined). Not only that, it’s the two year anniversary of my plot. So, it’s a double birthday celebration tomorrow. Just wanted to share a few photographs of the plot from the last two years and a little story with each to explain the processes, simply hover over each image or click on the first one to scroll through them. Thank you all for reading and for all the support over the past two years. Big things coming in the coming weeks/months in the garden, watch this space.
Now, to go cry into my birthday cake and lament my misspent youth. Hold me.
First plan, quickly changed to make room for….
some raised beds (that’s my friend Mark helping me out).
Took a full 7 days of backbreaking work
My first major planting project, my asparagus trench
Had to install a windbreak to protect the rhubarb from the wind
And of course, no garden is complete without a shed, so I had to get myself one
Glorious green plot in the first summer
…complete with serious weeds
Then, I decided to pretty up the beds
..so I painted them blue
Then I decided I needed a herb feature
It’s now my favourite part of the plot
Changed the location of the plot entrance to make the herb bed the first feature you see
Starting to kit out the tunnel
