Its true what they say about plumbers

Post: # 172385Post homegrown »

yep, plumbers have the worst pipes, builders never finish there houses and gardeners don't have enough time to work on there own.

OH is nagging me about getting the veg and flower gardens sorted out for Christmas,

here's a photo of my rather unfinshed patch and one of my pallet greenhouse inside sorry about the mess

Don't be too hard on yourself homegrown. It looks like you've got a good start and it looks really orgnanised -or near organised. On step at a time, eh? What else can you do?

It looks a lot better than mine! I think you're doing great. Perhaps if OHs helped us out a bit more things might get done a bit quicker. Yesterday I was beginning to feel overwhelmed with all the major jobs I have to do buzzing around in my head, so I wrote a 'to do' list. I then felt even more overwhelmed :pale: . By my reckoning, if I work really hard, at least 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, with the usual amount of help (i.e. none), I should be able to sit down and have a rest some time towards the end of February. :pale: Best get on with it then :salute:

So if that's UNtidy...what's mine?!! :lol:

Don't fret, a few weeds here & there give the nasties a choice. Well that's my excuse anyway :wink:
