>Buy sustainably challenge and Garden Bloggers’ bloom day

>

Maybe this is cheating a bit, but I think it qualifies for the Buy Sustainably challenge on 1greengeneration.  We wouldn’t actually have gone out and bought a rotavator, but when we were offered one which needed a little attention, and which otherwise was going to be thrown on the dump, we accepted it.  Lo Jardinièr cleaned the valves and the top of the piston, put the engine back together again …. and it works!

It will make cultivating the garden much easier – and we transported it to the garden in the cheap secondhand trailer which we bought jointly to share with our neighbour.  There’s no need to have one of our own – we don’t use it every day.

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day

There aren’t many flowers in the garden at the moment for Garden bloggers’ bloom day (hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens) and the ones that are there are mostly weeds, but we’re enjoying …

the climbing rose – not a weed

scabious – which is a weed but a nice one
vinca_2_1
vinca – also a weed which would cover the whole garden, given the chance.
