Another project to tick off the list :-)

The weather has been so fab here in Essex. We managed another day sorting out the garden yesterday. My project was sorting out the flower beds in the front garden. They were so full of weeds! I filled up 4 compost bags full – our heap was choc-a-bloc, so I will donate them to the Council waste collection. Me weeding

The beds look a bit empty now there are no weeds, although I planted some summer bulbs and have some seeds on the go to fill them up.

Another disaster area…

Mr Shoestring had a productive day too. First he titivated the sheds – not sure if you can see from the pic but he added some fancy edging. He just needs to add a door to the new shed and it is complete. It is a work of art!

Then he tried out the rotovator that his neighbour donated.

So I reckon that’s another two projects done! 🙂

    You said ‘I filled up 4 compost bags full – our heap was choc-a-bloc, so I will donate them to the Council waste collection.’ in Cornwall we have to pay for a garden waste collection unless we take to the tip you are lucky and are the compost bags free from the council, again we have to pay for recycling container

      Really? Surprised they charge as the weight of it helps them meet their recycling targets! We got the bags free at first but now have to pay £3.50 each. I don’t give them much though and they wouldn’t get any if they charged. I bet people burn a lot then?
