Weather just about held out today, although the wind did cause some issues. The patio and path have now been weeded, seating had a quick coat of saint, and the chickens got a new perch. We also did a little bit of pruning and tried to tidy the front up a bit, but the bits from the bush we cut where being blown all over the place!
Had a trial fit of the new pool today. What struck up most is how much bigger this one looks. However it is the same size as our old one. This one is slightly deeper, but the fact that the walls are vertical means it does give up a lot more swimming space inside. Also the kids will have to use the ladder to get in and out now, unlike the old one where they just got in and out anywhere.
Yesterday at long last our vegetable patch got planted. Although the potatoes have been in a while, the rest of the veg has bed some what lacking. We have now gotten in the tomato plants that Rosie grew at school, and some of our lettuce. We have had to cheat a tiny bit this year though as some of our veg got fried in this hyu weather! So we bought a couple of Veggy plants as well.
Obstacal course. Today I've Taken the day off gardening to play with the kids! The garden is really looking smart and the list is getting to the point, where I'm pretty confident it will look nice for our 10th Wedding anniversayr on the 30th! My oriignal thoughts for a games day, was because the weather forecast was rubbish... however it's turned out to be a great afternoon and we are all having lots of fun. (I just wish I had a photo of Emma doing the obstacal course!)
