Remember that hardcore I scored off freecycle? That green house my grandfather donated?


No more is it sitting in my front garden or down the side of my house… Well, not for long anyway. As you can see above the foundations for the greenhouse are in, the block work will be put down on Thursday leaving sun/mon to put up the greenhouse.

Meantime the rest of the hardcore is being used in the path.


It’s 27m long and will have a mini patio at the end with a small pergola to grow my grape vine and Japanese climbing berries.

All of this has been achieved over about 10hrs work by a single labourer – my neighbours son. I have no doubt I could have done both these jobs myself, but I imagine what has taken him just over a day would have taken a bank holiday for me and the path still wouldn’t be complete!
