Vegetable boxes

I've been making a couple of vegetable boxes out of old bits of wood and fence posts for near the lorry. This is the first one.....and on the other side there is a small one too.
I won't build any in front of the lorry as one day I hope to drive the lorry off on a few more travels.
Box three and four......hopefully soon they will be producing lovely veggies.

Footings and loads of mud

With the footings dug, we had a little problem with water. So I ended up simply using a bucket to scoop up the excess water and after quite a while I finally managed to drain them ready for the hardcore to go in.
We laid out six sleepers over the hardcore then levelled off the earth ready for the damp proof course to lay on top. I had to move my little washing machine drum fire pit as it was water logged and also in the way.....it went from a muddy spot to a slightly less muddier spot







Then I re laid down some of the paving slabs for the new path.


That's as far as we have got, but it's a start.
