It's my Sisters place, I just help out and share the veg plot, she's got another separate garden to this that takes up sooo much time. She brings the prunings down and I burn them :D

Looking good zigs! At the end you mentioned the pillbox - can you still get inside it or was it sealed up?

I rebuilt it, someone had widened the door to get something in at some stage.







Bit of a mess in there at the moment, got what's left of my furniture in there and it's where i'm doing the leaded glass work

What a great garden you have! Can you elaborate on the cloche gardening aspect? I'm not sure I've ever seen that here. I vaguely remember having plants growing under old windows when I was as kid in the UK. For warmth I guess?

You have a very nice voice, Zigs! I've always had a soft spot for British accent:D
Your garden is a wonderful place. I'd love to have so many vegetables! Thank you for sharing this video:)

Thanks Zigs for sharing.Lots of work and lots of results.The pillbox looks great and great spot for your leadlighting. I love leadlighting.
The tour idea is great. My garden looks pretty ordinary at present, cold, bleak, wet but I'd love to take you all for a stroll in Spring. :)

Ta all :)

Glad you said that @claudine Thought my voice sounded awful :D

We've been plagued by cold winds this year @Beth_B The cloches help keep them off.

Look forward to that @DeborahJane :)

I love doing the work in the garden, although I got a bit behind recently due to a breakdown :(

Getting over it now and getting back on with things.

I start work tomorrow as a volunteer gardener for the National Trust at Thomas Hardy's old house Max Gate :)
