After work today, I grabbed a quick lunch and then headed straight out to the garden. Dad and Colin were also having lots of outdoor fun, picking up the remains of the dyke wall, which had collapsed into the road. Thankfully no one was injured during the collapse, which could have been kind of fatal to anyone unlucky enough to be passing at the time. They've made not too bad a job of the repair, though Colin wants to add a bit more fencing to make the garden a bit more secure.
I avoided the rocky weight lifting and got on with some planting instead. Three bags of potatoes are now planted, plus a couple of planters and a tray of lettuce. I have also finally got two wall planters I bought several years ago actually attached to the wall. They're now filled with lobelia and petunia, which will hopefully play well together! Colin also lined the edge of the stone chip area, where it meets with the lawn area, with large stones, ably assisted by Ruairidh, who even built a wee wall at one bit. Operation polytunnel is scheduled for tomorrow!
