Some sneaky pics of the garden today and a quick recycled  brick wall tutorial.
I've spent a lot of time in the garden dodging hailstones and trying to mow or paint or weed.

Greenhouse in full seedling explosion

Tomato growbags ready to receive the plants once they've grown on a bit.

Garlic! We won't need to worry about vampires this year!

Simple brick wall round the rhubarb.
 This is such an easy trick and looks really effective. I really like the kitchen garden effect.
Basically you need to dig a shallow, level trench and then lay the bricks in like slightly fallen dominos. You can then use cement if you want to or, as I have done, just pushed mud between the spaces and filled the trenches with mud. It holds them really well.

and a view of much of the garden.

Look at the birds! They love to come around to this side of the fence when I'm out there in case they get a few worms or some weeds thrown over. Our coop is not just this small section. We cut out a cat flap sized hole through the fence and they can go through it into a much larger section of the garden that is secure and fox proofed for them. You can see the otherside here.

So that's what we've been up to this weekend. How about you?
