    Very inspiring.
    From your first pictures, the lot looked like it had a lot of potential, and now, seeing it take shape, it looks great!
    You've done a lot in such a small amount of time! I look forward to following this thread further and seeing more pictures.

    These are pics I took early in the year will take some of the plot now later on today

    Well this is the raspberry patch fully planted, ive planted poached egg plant as ground cover and hover fly attractant. Will have to wait and see if the posts are too high at 6ft

    Been having limited success with these cloches, its a windy site and most days I find them pulled apart. Just wondered if anyone have suggestions for stronger one

    Danjensen, WOW, You have done well there. I am impressed. I wish I could have a garden like that. I would be canning my brains out.....I would never have to go to the store. :D

    Can't wait to see the progress....
