beans & veg

We are lucky to have a veg patch the size of most peoples gardens at the house we rent at the moment but it does take a lot of work and has been neglected a little recently whilst I do revision for my teacher training exam but as the weather is getting better and the beans are ready for planting I thought I would spend some time in the garden! so the plan at the moment is to spend the mornings doing housework and gardening and any household chores and then the afternoon is revision, sewing, tuition prep etc. We will see how it goes!

Here is the veg patch this morning, as you can see I did start it at the weekend, but I'd like to get it all done by the end of this weekend so that we can plant everything and then just keep on top of the weeding.


And after I spent an hour and a half digging, weeding, turning over, playing with Noah, getting a horrid blister in the centre of my hand!

What do we think, any better?

Will tackle the rest of the stinging nettles round the gooseberries, redcurrents, blackcurrents, rhubarb and raspberries tomorrow I think and fingers crossed I don't sting all down my face again!

What a productive morning! i've done nothing apart from moan about having a sore throat and updating a few bunny pics :(

Wow! I think I'd want a lie down after all that hard work. Well done if you can all the other stuff done too!
