A little while ago I had had the brilliant idea of emptying the green goopy water out of it and moving it up to the lawn to act as a giant planter. Rich seemed ok with this but pointed out that is was a huge task and would take all day and basically he was snowed under with work and didn't have time...so at 4pm on Sunday I took it into my head to just go ahead and do it! It took an hour to empty (one watering can full at a time) , then drag it away from the garage and up to the lawn.
We are also going to take out the lethal Hawthorn hedge as we simple hate it. The spikes on it are horrible, we have both suffered from getting them through the soles of our shoes and I'm amazed no one has been blinded when trying to cut the damn thing so its coming out be being replaced with fruit trees as soon as possible.
I love this time of year, when the garden is starting to wake up again, I'm full of ambitions and plans but as usual we have no time and very little money so I feel that there will be much more recycling of rusty old barrels before the end!
