The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Greenhouse Progress

Chris's injury!
Bill from Travis Perkins unloading

It still feels like demolition at this stage but Chris slaved away ALL day and dug out the trench in readiness for footings for the base wall. However, NOT before the old greenhouse had its revenge! The main reason for replacing our wooden one is because of its low door and because the taller people just KEPT on hitting their heads time after time! Following a major delivery, the drive is now full. The skip is too full and all the wheel barrows are full!  The trench is finished and all as neat as can be - well done Chris! 

A very full drive (and skip!)
We're praying for dry weather and await the arrival of the other Chris on Thursday evening (with cement mixer and hose pipes at the ready!)

Finished trenches.
