Stones and Spare Tyres

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...


  Your new award

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.


Good night, said Zebedee - boing!

Bye for now.

  2. I'm trying to think of a places to put my butternut squash. They grow so long. One will stay in the greenhouse and trained along the wall. The weather rain and sunshine is brilliant for the gardens.Well done on the weightloss it's never easy but we'll worth it. I lost 16lb on WW.

  3. Congratulations on your weight loss, I could do with losing a few pounds myself but instead of losing I have piled more on. Hopefully now that we are more settled a healthier diet will help.
