OK then, for those who want to see the dreadful extent of my gardening shame!
The sorry pictorial story of the consequences of taking your eye off the ball in an early, warm Spring, when your soil is fertile and organic. But to be fair, I could not garden when J. was so ill and then I went away. But still I am mortified!
The herb corner: the only things left are the chives.
The front garden:
The strawberry bed:
The fruit garden: oh my, a disaster and I weeded it only two months ago.
A ‘rescued’ bed down the side of the house:
The poor ‘lawn’ in the orchard after ‘hay-making’, but it was 18″ high and the rain will help it green up I’m sure. Again in my own defence, it is full of daffodils so we always leave it until June to cut it so that they have a chance to die down first.
As I get round to the beds in the earlier photos I will post the ‘after’ photos.
At least I hope it makes all you other gardeners out there feel good about your own plots:)
