seagrass shed

A dry May Day allowed me to paint the shed; much needed new livery to match its recently waterproofed roof. I’m not sure that the colour is as bonny as the previous blue, but it’s certainly better than the rather tatty algae finish that the winter months had generated. Note also the quince tree, recovered from its frosting and greening up again, as is the espalier apple tree on the other side.

And it’s comforting to see that the pea and broad bean seedlings planted out over recent days are all looking happy and healthy in situ. I’ve also continued with the no-dig method and added a good layer of home made compost to what will be this year’s courgette bed.

    Love the shed colour of the shed! I’m about to put my first shed on the allotment and may steal your idea of espalier trees for the side 🙂
