I made a thing

My veg patch:

It might yet fall apart, it isn't brilliantly made but I am chuffed to bits with it!

Cordless screwdrivers are excellent for sore hands (am in oodles of pain now but worth it) and I love drilling (am looking round for more things to attack).

Have removed a few inches of last years compost from each container and added fresh, and as you can see my incredible cat prevention system. AKA trellis.

As we seem to have snow, sleet and ice forecast for next week (after two weeks of 20C weather) everything is staying in the greenhouse for a while. With hot water bottles and mugs of cocoa.

But eventually there will be assorted green beans, peas, salad and some veg to go in these. Might fill the gaps with smaller planters for the lettuce.

I love my tiny garden.
