Garden Project


This is the little garden project I was telling you about in the last post. I have converted an old concrete laundry tub into a little garden planter. It is now beside the back steps, and planted up with the strawberry plants, chives, thyme, mint and coriander.

I like to have herbs growing close to the house, so I can quickly nip out and pick them fresh.


I wonder if my ducks will eat any strawberries they see hanging over the edge? Hope not! :(


Now I just have to wait for everything to grow.
I took this last photo this morning (still in my pj's) and wearing my garden shoes. A nice spot to sit in the sun with a cuppa on a winter's morning.
Cheerio for now,
Sandi xx

Hi Sandi,
Looks a lovely spot to sit. I have some herbs growing in window boxes, but I would love to have some strawberry plants. Well actually I did have some, but they all died off in all that snow we got.

Good looking tub there Sandi...especially close to the back door...and nothing nicer than sitting in pj's in the sun with a cuppa....Like the colour of the slippers too♥x

What a lovely herb garden! I can't wait till it warms up here and we can get out in the garden and start planting!

I am sure the birds, ducks or not ducks will try to eat your strawberries.

all this looks so relaxing and lovely...Maybe you will need to get a strawberry guard;)?

The tubs turned out really well. They are a different style to most down our way. You'll enjoy watching everything grow.
