61 tyres


is the amount i can fit in the boot of my vectra.

so how many do i need about 20 more carfuls lol
it’s the first day today that bella has gone to nursery and i haven’t had to work so….
i visited the garden center near my house and questioned them about top soil they know nothing/ but did give me some half dead plants for free i would have paid for them.

i continued with the help of the chooks to dig out the stepped bed in the corner of the garden the first level looks like soil now we(haha the chooks are really helpful when your not nearly stabbing them in the head with the fork)even mangaed to dig in some compost. more tomorrow.

i also cut the grass it only took ten minutes to do on the lawn bit and another forty minutes to cut down some more of the rough bits.


30 allium bulbs cannot remember them name there yellow ones about 15cm tall form pound strecher 99p. cheap cheap cheap.

pictures to follow of tyre and digging with chooks.

Wondered what you were doing with all those tyres Kat pink? Now I can see you are building raised beds. Seems you and your girls (hens) have lots of hard work ahead! Keep up the good work and looking forward to next installment. Love Sue x

this bed is going to house all the cheap half dead plants i'm collecting from the garden center at the moment.
next step back filling the bed and building a chicken wire cage over the plants to stop my chooks help digg the plants back

Now I see what you mean, these tyres look purpose built for the job. Lol. I think your garden is going to look fantastic by next year. Well done you and the 'girls'
How come I never get given free plants at garden centres?
