So as you may know with my previous posts i’ve been doing a lot of work in my garden and balcony.
Here are some pics from the balcony☺
This is my herb garden. It contains coriander, mint, oregano, sage, parsley, rocket, basil, a lemon thing and a lavender plant for good measure.
Here are 4 tomato plants, a few different varieties, there are also 2 down in my back garden were my allotment is situated.
A sitting area were I spend most of my time chilling if the sun permits.
A couple of strawberry plants, one is fairing a lot better than the other though.
A flower plant by the door, still to clean this area properly though.
Thanks for following my progress, I’ve done a lot more work since in my back garden so I will post pics of that tomorrow☺
How long do I walk
These hills getting steeper
My mind getting clearer
Delve deeper and deeper
My soul and my heart
You’ve picked them apart
Can’t find all the pieces
Hope we are all feeling well. It was a really sunny day today and has been for the last week or so and feeling inspired and motivated I continued my recent garden project by deciding to tackle the back again.
Today I built another section to grow vegetables in, I might of went overboard but i’m working with minimum tools which makes it particularly difficult.The materials are from some old furniture, mainly a wardrobe and bed frame. I’m going to try and source out some topsoil before I get paid and then I will be planting something on this side as well. The pots will be filled as well and put to use with a variety of fruit and vegetables.
In time I envision a nice statue, a pond and maybe a small patio table and chair number 🙂 I will post pics of my herbs and strawberry plants as well in the near future, they are on the balcony at the front of the house.
Enjoy and let me know what you think and be sure to help me if you have any useful tips.
So I bet you’re probably thinking what did the broken down wardrobe say to the wannabe allotment… maybe not but heres the pics anyway.
I have big plans for this, maybe it’s early enthusiasm but I envision growing vegetables in the allotment maybe a selection of herbs or fruit in the front square pots and something decorative at the back.
Few different angles here, the bin, tools and soil will be removed from the slabs for a mixture of pots and a small seating/observation area.
This is the area im digging up at the moment to make another allotment area for other vegetables. Potatoes or carrots most likely. I shall keep you updated.
It’s crazy the difference in my life from gardening, cooking and writing poetry haha i’m a changed man! 🙂 Really satisfying. I shall post pics of my balcony as well soon. A variety of herbs, a good few strawberry plants and two apple trees started today so happy days all round!
Have a great day.
watching myself contemplate —
floodgates open up
Sandy beach he walks
an early morning visit
takes some time to contemplate
dragging his heels through fear
