How Does Your Garden Grow - Week 8

I haven't posted a How Does Your Garden Grow post for a few weeks simply because not much has been happening in the garden due to the season. However last week we saw a lot of change in the vegetable patch.

The hubby and my dad were busy all weekend trimming the large conifer that separates the vegetable patch from the main garden, an area was built for some new sheds and a stunning conifer chipping path going through the patches was created.

When I look back at the pictures below of how our vegetable patch looked just last year I am amazed by how much it has altered. It is all thanks to the hard work and passion of my hubby.

Here is how our garden has grown...

Our vegetable patch now...


The main part of the garden has also seen some changes. The hubby has placed an edge along the conifer border using leftover conifer chippings as a mulch and at last we are seeing the signs of spring with new life returning.

The latest addition to our household, 10 week old Opie, is also loving being able to get out in the garden!

As always I am sharing how our garden has grown with the lovely Annie at Mammasaurus

How Does Your Garden Grow


  1. Your garden is looking fabulous! Are those beds raised? I wasn't sure and am a total novice with big plans!

  2. I need to borrow your husband for garden duties! Opie! TOO CUTE!!! You aren't a Sons of Anarchy fan by any chance are you?!

    Smart idea about using the conifer bits as mulch - so much hard work has gone into your garden, must be a feeling of great satisfaction.

    Thanks for joining in again, here's hoping to Spring springing properly very soon! x

  3. Loving the conifer mulch - I think it's also good for plants that need ericaceous compost. Loving the puppy and her stick too! Have a fab weekend x #hdygg

  4. What a fab veg patch you've got, raised beds are such a good idea. It's great to see the first signs of spring :-)

  5. What a lovely garden and cute pup! I'd love raised beds at our allotment and you have given me an idea for pathways now with the chippings.

  6. That's an impressive amount of raised beds, lots of growing space for the year ahead. Opie is very cute :)

  7. Yay - Opie gets look in on #HDYGG as well as #AnimalTales :) So glad you enjoyed seeing our garden at Eco-Gites of Lenault from Annie's perspective ... and yes you do need to persuade hubby to all come and visit ...


Thank you for your comments I do love to hear what you think and try to reply to as many as I can x
