More Painting, More Weeding

Nice and grubby today! I am trying to encourage myself to get at least an hour of weeding done per day. That’s got to help doesn’t it?

We did get a bit further on the tall front part of the house

Jeff wobbled about on the extension ladder and I did some second coats of the lower half.

Meanwhile – I started with this:

And ended up with this:

The parsley has self seeded ferociously!!

I also managed to put together a little plot of celery by relocating some self seeded plants

My dodgy bit of plastic worked… now to get some more convenient sized stuff to work with over the pathways in the garden to kill some more weeds!

The accidental potatoes in the failed broccoli patch are enormous!! I have never seen plants like it! They are huge and spilling over the side. I dug about and found some really good sized spuds in there too! I need this plot back soon but don’t have the heart to uproot them until they are ready. Hoping for a lot of potatoes from them

The newer patches of lettuce and beetroot are going beautifully!

Gave everything a good drink today. Its just so incredibly dry and hot! Not used to that anymore. So glad we have the bore!

The last day of the challenge is today (when I say last day I mean last album to be posted and then follows ten more days of annoying people to get their last images in and vote haha.)
Anyway, subject was twisty… had a nice time sitting down and photographing the tendrils from the adventurous pumpkin plants!

Have a great weekend everyone!
