A couple of years ago, we decided to use up some old bits and bobs to make a bug home in our garden. The first buggery appeared shortly after and now we have four residential bug-blocks and a host of small sub-buglets.
The thing is that when you start out with this whole re/up-cycling schermozzle you cant stop. Which meant that, when our current two compost bins began to collapse we began a hunt for bits and bobs to replace them.
We asked our neighbours for old pallets we saw stacked in their garden waiting to go to the dump. We took some old doors from the Lawyers flat and we kept back the pond liner I rather stupidly tore when the first attempt to make a pond fell apart a few years ago.
The result is a rather splendid run of new compost bins – we now have four – and a corner shelter for the spades and larger tools.
I’m knackered but rather pleased.
And here a few pics from the green shoots of spring that are beginning to peek out in our garden. Things must be improving as Vicky, the family tortoise, is making her annual bid for freedom from her hibernation box.
