Pallet reclaiming and seed testing

Today I haven’t done much out in the garden. I put all the plants out to bask in the sun –

The spinach has started showing signs of life –

I stripped down a pallet and had a surprisingly large amount of usable wood from it –

Just need to get hold of some more now.

I also test planted the green manure and wildflower, using the clean dirt from the garden –

Hopefully another nice day for flower basking again tomorrow.

Raised Bed – Part 5 – Lined Up and New Seeds

Today I got out into the garden much earlier since I won’t be able to this evening. I used some connectors and screwed the wood together, I didn’t get a chance to screw it on to the bed though as the rain came.

I am very impressed with how it is looking though and can’t wait to put it in.

I have also received my seeds back that I ordered from Premier Seeds Direct and Lawn UK

The ones from Premier Seeds Direct are the White Clover that I will be using for Green Manure.

The Seeds from Lawn UK are a mixture of wildflower, specially mixed for Bumble Bees.

Both sets of seeds cost me 99p delivered and I will be testing them out tomorrow.

Also tomorrow I will be putting the raised bed together and putting it into place, leaving just the soil sieving and getting hold of manure.
