This is as you go through the gate, there's a little waterfall into the pool and loads of brown trout in there, keep mean to get a dingy to paddle around on lol

My scaffold bridge across to the orchid, and the new water butt i put in in march, got sick of the blue bins filling with mosquitos and leaf litter, i pump water from the stream into the ibc its a life saver.

Plum tree, apple tree and the currants and raspberries, this autumns job is to make a frame over them and permanently net them

If you look at the terraces the one with the black slates on the bay with black stone is my mum and dads, and i live a hundred yards round the corner, basically this is my garden, next to the main plot on the side of the tunnel is an 18 hole golf course. Its mint i love it.

That's a good plot..not many sites are that nice looking.

My pics are a few months old..

Only a few spuds left in..those onions you can see are actually elephant garlic.

The onions are hidden on the right of the pic

Chillis in polytunnel..scotch bonnet and alabama reaper mostly..and a few ghost chillis.. (gotta have it hot)

I used to have just the plot nearest the camera but the other guy got too old to handle it so took the back one too..another guy is getting on a bit so is lending me a half plot to move my spuds for a year or 2

The guy who had the plot before put so much of the black stuff in it and used to walk all over it then dig a groove and put peat in it to plant seeds as ground was so hard

safe to say nothing ever rooted properly

I dug the whole lot over with some manure and not had to do anything with it for 2 years as all the ingredients were there..just needed a good mix

And the comfrey juice me and my mate make works wonders(and stinks)

ohhh i bet it dont stink like the cabbage leaf juice i made once....:eek:

 

great photos great job...i just about to level my garden and start again....i will win...
