My ramblings of how me and mine, live our best life on our little Welsh homestead. Growing our own, aiming for self-sufficiency and self-reliance, fun and frolics, learning lots - not getting it right all the time but loving everything, even if it rains!
Good evening. Those of you who kindly find themselves here on a regular basis will know I am on a quest to lose a goodly amount of weight. well, at my weigh in last night I reached my first goal of...
that's 2 stone!
I am chuffed to bits with this and even feel confident posting a photo of myself which I haven't felt for a good while....
The spare tyre pun refers to Jon bringing home the last tyre I needed for the garden. This afternoon, once I had fed the chooks, I set to shovelling some of my own compost as I've run out of bought and felt this would suit the job. I put as much as I thought I needed into the tyre and then made a tripod, four canes actually, and planted out the climbing beans from the Poly House along with the four butternut squash that have been ready for a couple of days.
I haven't quite filled the tyre as I did for the spuds but I can always add a bit before they get too big. Also, I'm a little concerned that the sun won't be able to get to the squash but I'll be keeping an eye on them over the next few days.
The weather here has been perfect over the last couple of days, warm but with some rain and it is doing the power of good for everything. I love walking around the garden in the evening seeing how things are coming on.
Oh, one last thing. Jon acquired a trampoline for the boys the other day and after a but of refurbishment it is good as gold. They have wanted one for so long but we have never had the room until now.
