The Growing house next door and my disappearing garden.
It's been about 3months since they flattened the house next door, their is a period after they put the slab down where it is left for a while to cure and we had rain in this period but this all helps in the process as it stops it from drying out to quickly, the things you learn when they build next door.
So far all the tradesmen have been friendly and not real noisy.
But the brickies arrived yesterday morning at 6am, they are noisy, they swear a lot and very loudly and in english so we know everything they are saying, but it's the singing now that's bad, the other tradesmen sing too but they are more in tune.
I think it should be part of their training they take singing lessons.
This is going to be a big house and no real room for a garden, this is the end of my house and there one is still going.
It was a busy week, I made a new top for my potatoes and onion jar, if I use the lid they potatoes and onions go mouldy in the summer so I made a material top so they could breath, works well.
Notice my curtains and toaster cover match but I had run out of material so I couldn't match up with the the potato jar.
Also extended the curtain in the craft room, I need a tiny blind for this room when someone sleeps here to darken it up, I will have to make one as I never seen one small enough or the right colour.
Now the garden well Drumstick is a digger, so far all pots are safe and the herb garden is doing well.
And she leaves her areas alone
But other areas are fair game, she hunts the insects and snails and any plants in the way are fair game too.
No ground covers have survived and pots now live in gardens
But I am learning to cope, what I need is some nice big prickly plants, she leaves them alone.
and lots of ornaments.
Well the sun is shining and it's the first day of summer so I 'm off to have a few words with my chook and fix up any damage she has done in the night, we can't lock her up she is a wiz at getting out of places.
