Oh dear, a month has passed since I blogged about the state my garden is in, and it’s not looking that much better now. Which isn’t very surprising because I’ve not been doing all that much about it. I’ve just had too much to do and I’ve allowed the garden to be the thing that slips. And if I’m honest, it’s felt like I have got so behind with things that there was no point spending the time I did have up in the garden. It had gone from being a pleasant escape from the computer and a chance to do something productive out in the fresh air, to this big looming thing that needed to be done along with all the other THINGS that needed to be done with the end result that if my veg plot was an allotment I’d probably be getting one of those stiff letters from the committee by now.
Fortunately it’s not, although I am there at the indulgence of the landlord, so there’s a limit to how far I can let things slip. So this week I’ve actually been following my own advice and putting in a regular hour a day getting on with what needs to be done (when I haven’t been harassing hard-working vole families). So far without much visible results, but I hope by the end of the week I can at least put up an ‘after’ shot that will look measurably different from these ones.
