The Start of a New Garden

Although I have the allotment, I plan to also grow some things on the barge.  I going to have window boxes around the wheelhouse to grow salad leaves, cherry toms, spring onions etc.  And then I will grow herbs in pots on the decks as well as some pretty flowers (probably edible ones!).  The idea is so that I don't have to go up to the allotment first thing in the morning when I am making my lunch to take to work.  Also, when you are cooking you need herbs to hand, not five minutes walk away!  I have now started to clear the garden to make way for Rob's chickens and a lot of the pots have gone up to the allotment but some have found their way on to the fore deck of the barge.  The sailor is guarding the mint and Mr. Mole is overseeing the thyme.  There are two empty pots waiting for sage and parsley and the other three pots contain geraniums and crocus.  I haven't decided what to put in the wellies yet, but they were so sweet that I couldn't resist them! 


  1. You're so busy! I'm impressed, and I'm sure it will all be wonderful. (The wellies really are cute.)

  2. Hi Kay, I might be busy but I am absolutely shattered. Can't wait until I can sit down with a good book and just read!
