Piggies Blog for the Lockdown
Well what’s been happening since my last blog. All I can say is the world has gone crazy..queuing to get your weekly shopping, children can’t go to school, can’t travel to see friends or family and should only leave the house for essentials. Therefore life has pretty much come to a halt.
When everything first went tits up, I was originally still in work but I was only working 2 to 3 days a week so I wondered what I could do with all this new free time. We’ve been in our house now for around 6 years and since moving in, I wanted to do something with both the front garden and back garden, perfect opportunity I thought to start to do some work and beginning this little task. Well it was a good idea, only managed a week on these short shifts before I was called back into work for days and full shift. Work has now slowed down but not stopped.
What have I been doing, I thought I would start with something easy as I wanted to grow things from seed, so far I’ve tried to grow some herbs, tomatoes and flowers. Until today, I was having no luck. I went into my little greenhouse to check on my seedlings, and three have begun to sprout. I checked which pot it was, and it was the sun flowers that I had planted, so it would appear that I could grow some things. The trouble is, can I keep them growing and see them through to being an actual Sunflower.
The rest of the things that I have grown have not been so lucky, no herbs, no flowers. I think I drowned them, so I have planted some more herbs to see if I can have better luck, I will keep you posted on my progress and whether or not I have better luck the second time around.
I have made some planters for the front and back garden, in these planters I have planted various trees, shrubs and flowers. Currently these are doing well, my plan with these is to let them establish within the planters and then to ask Sir to build, well I say ask, I actually mean, remind Sir that he said that he would build me some bigger planters for the back garden. There are other things that I want, like a potting table, bigger greenhouse thing, BBQ area an a fire pit to name but a few. Now these maybe grand ideas seeing as myself and hubby are not very creative or good with our hands, well in a creative building kinda way anyway. So I’ll just have to see what everything looks like this time next year, or may be sooner if we don’t get any type of freedom soon…
Take care everyone and I’ll see you all next month
