Don't give up,Storm!  Remember the old sayings - 'I love babies but couldn't eat a whole one' and 'slowly, slowly, catchee monkey'  Take your garden a bit at a time - I am trying to do that too.

Thank you, i will remember that saying lol, how very true it is. We will get there i guess.

Don't give up Storm. I look at mine every day & there is times I could very easily turn & run. A little at once works. I know. It has taken me months to get to the position I'm in & I still have so much to do. And that's only one garden, got the large one to sort yet   :(  I know I'll get there. Just gotta keep at it.
Living where I do Wiz I have some good fencing materials available to me. There is only one side to fence as there are walls on 3 sides. I'm gonna split it into 3 sections though.

The British Government do not want to support the farmers.They appear to want all farms made into play areas to many. ??? :farmer:

Are you friendly with a local farmer?  :farmer:  We are lucky to live next to a dairy farm and he ploughed my veggie garden for me.

You took the words out of my mouth (well fingers anyway) This what I did too. You then have a big blank canvas, without all the hassle.

Hello folks, well back from holiday, we had a day of rain, the rest of the week was ok, we had 1 day where it was really hot, we all had a lovely time.
We live on a farm, but i am not sure if they would do the back for us, i have asked them how i go about doing it, but never offered, so i dont want to ask them.

Hey Storm. If you don't ask you don't get. I'm a little cheeky with the farmer that owns my place & ask for all sorts of things  :)  I have repaired & painted a couple of things for him in return though. :)   I am just sorting out some pictures. I will open a new post then you can see the work I've got to come & the work I've done.
