I say update but I actually don’t think I’ve posted much about our garden at all! But I’m now getting a bit excited about finally getting out garden sorted! We moved to this house about 5 years ago and one of the main attractions was the garden – it’s big! And perfect for two dogs and two kids.

Since we’ve been here we’ve taken down all the leylandis and got a builder in to extend a patio area and put in raised beds in. We also had a vegetable patch put in and finally we’ve planted some veg in it!
We went to our local garden centre (Fron Goch) for a talk about growing veggies which was very interesting. I spent a while afterwards looking though their selection of veg for ideas of what to plant.
What I also would like is a composter so I can put our food waste to good use. I also would like a greenhouse. There’s a greenhouse at the other house which we possibly could salvage and repair using this plastic greenhouse glass*. Plastic would be ideal because it would be safer with two young children.

I think there’s a big improvement from where we started but there’s still a lot to do yet. I want to put in some cherry blossom trees in the far corner and extend the veggie patch.
What do you think?
