I've posted a couple of harvests to Daphne's "Harvest Monday" in the past year -see http://daphnesdandelions.blogspot.com/2011/01/harvest-monday-3-janauary-2011.html but I have to own up that they were Sunday harvests really. Thanks to the bank holiday this one is a genuine Monday Harvest(!):
Trying to make my New Year's resolutions I kept on coming up with building jobs, necessary to get ahead with the growing or protecting of fruit and veg. Oh well better get on with one of them: using the bricks I'd gathered to make raised beds at home to bring on seedling for the plot. Off to get the tools of the trade. How's that for a trendy trug?
I've no experience of bricklaying or building generally, but having so many bricks I'm using them for the foundations as well as the walls themselves. Here's an idea of progress today. I'm doing 4 of these in a square with a cross shaped path running between them in what was an infertile rose bed before we moved in. It could take a few weeks but I hope to have everything ready before spring.!(?)
