How typical is this, after a weekend of rain and hailstones the sun finally decides to pay us a visit on the day that Mr Frugal goes back to work!
The weather was so bad that I didn’t get chance to do my back garden over the weekend as planned so I thought I would have a go this afternoon while the sun is shining.
I’ve already tidied the bins up and sorted the recycling boxes out, they are now hiding around the side of the house which I am sure Mr Frugal will have a whinge about as its about 10 foot further to walk to put the rubbish in the bin. The view outside my patio doors is now a lot more appealing….
Any rubbish has been picked up and the kids toys are now in one corner of the garden looking neat and tidy. It looks about three hundred times better and at least the neighbours won’t think they live next door to the Clampets anymore 😉 I’ve even got the table and chairs out of the garage so we look posh!
Now I need to start my vegetable garden! I got some really good tips from my good friends on Twitter and I’ve decided that I’m going to wait until the summer to sort out my potential vegetable garden area as it really needs a good dig over and some good top soil before I plant anything there so for now I’m going to grow our vegetables in containers. I’m going to pop down town this afternoon and buy some containers, soil and seeds and then we’re on the road to self sufficency (I told you I tend to get carried away lol).
