there is always room...


I have an allotment - that is where I should grow food.  I have a teeny tiny back garden at the back of a terraced house and two energetic children -  that is where they should play when we are at home...


Today, I 'accidently' planted 10 tomato plants (with another 10 waiting for hanging basket space).  I'm sure they won't take up much space when they are fully grown....


...and I couldn't help but put out another tub of salad leaf seeds to replace these when they go over soon...


...and I don't think I ever did get round to pruning the giant black elder bush that the previous owners planted in a much too small garden (maybe because I want the flowers and then berries for a bit of cordial?) - so along with currants, plums, cherries, strawberries, kiwi fruit and quails there is not much ground left for playing on - lets hope they've had a busy day at school - gulp.

Ha I stopped long ago pretending that the garden was for the children. My one concession was a climbing frame but now he is nearly 8 does he really need that???
