2013

I am making plans for next year, as I'm sure many of you are. I have yet to buy a diary, & there is a lovely giveaway at http://jo-thegoodlife.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/im-giving-away-year.html so hopefully I may win. If not it will be a trip into town.

There will be the exploits of my compost bin building to look forward to. There will not be any power tools involved Mike has told me. I gave him my book to look at, the one with the plans in. He will be helping, I knew he wouldn't be able to stop himself.  I hadn't looked at the book for a couple of years, its funny how time makes you forget things. It was quite a shock when I found the page I wanted. I seemed to recall detailed instructions. This is all I have.

To help me next year I will be using a book called Practical Gardening and Food Production in Pictures. I have posted about it before. It really is a lovely old fashioned book, towards the end of the book there are pages dealing with tasks to perform for the relevent month.

 I am reading the section on January with great interest. Enjoy your day!

  3. Thank you for linking to my giveaway, and for your entry. I love those types of compost bins, we've just got a black dalek type in the garden, and pallets at the allotment.

    1. I have three dalek bins but they need to be moved. They will then be on ful view so beehive bins it will be. It will prove entertaining if nothing else by me making them.

  5. Some of the best cooking and gardening books are the older ones. I have some of my grandmother's gardening books and they are fantastic. Good luck with your planning - always fun to plan!
