We haven’t exchanged contracts yet, so we’re taking a risk in starting work in the garden of our new house. But I want to plant the vegetable patch before it’s too late in the year. The owners must be committed as they’ve taken the unorthodox step of giving us the key to the house.
We bought seedlings – various varieties of runner beans, broad beans, marrow. Last week was half term, so the whole family spent some hours there.
My husband has been lighting the downstairs fires to warm the chimney and see if its working properly. It was more than just the chimney that smoked! But at least I could finish with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit in front of the fire.
