Lots of different things you can make, all using Magic Dough kept in the fridge
Home made apricot jam. A bargaintastic 39p a jar! Fresh and wonderful, and better than even the poshest versions you can buy!

By heck it was hot today. Mike wanted to go for a walk, as he did yesterday. There was NO WAY I was walking in a squillion degrees! It was too hot to do very much until this evening, when the temperature dropped from 31 to a mere 26. I took a few pictures around the back garden as someône had asked to see the garden as a whole.

This is looking directly out the back of the kitchen. View complete with hosepipe from when I was watering. The bed directly in front is the one with all the new plants in

Out the back door

This is the view to the right showing the summerhouse, the white building is the woodshed and above that is the compost heap. In the foreground is the pond under construction. Mike hasn’t done any this past week as he has been laying slabs for the path running behind the pond and up to the heap.

View to the right of the kitchen

And this is to the left, showing a corner of the greenhouse and the two veggie beds. You can just see the pots with the white nemesia in them, stood on the low wall. They fill the garden with the delicious scent of vanilla. I’m so glad I got them, they are so floriferous and fragrant.

This is the path behind the pond, looking back to the house
Path behind the pond

You can just about see how the wood shed is filling up. Quite a bit more to be sawn up and added to the pile, plus Mike keeps bringing home more pallets and scrap timber. I’m hoping all the various bits of wood around the place will be tidied up into here.

Further on down that side is this bed with a gooseberry and a black currant which I picked the last of the fruit of today. I put it just a bit too far from the path for comfortable fruit picking, so I’ll probably move it forward a bit in the winter. In the front are some new pink geraniums, having a bit of  a rest  right now, more flowers should come soon. Behind that is a daphne. It lived in a pot for many years and I planted it in here about a month ago. It seems much happier and is putting on new leaves.

Walk down that path down the side of the house and this is another view of that same bed

Down the greenhouse side of the house is that small bed that is developing so nicely

And this is inside the greenhouse showing the tomatoes, with chillies on the left. There is just room for two grow bags down the side, and one along the back with three tomatoes in each bag.
