Generation Minibook

This is three generations of my family my nana, great nana and great great nana and as far as I have got with my minibook this afternoon, while watching 'the sound of music'.
I've loved getting the pictures together and am endeavouring to find some back further than 1855.

My Vegetable Garden

We finally got everything together for the raised veg bed, I wanted a rasied bed so that 1 I could have really good quality compost on top of my own improved soil which is a bit clay like ( I fixed it up a bit with some manure and grit!!) The stuff on top is really nice compost and it took 9 bags of compost to fill it. I have been growing some of the veg in a little greenhouse and after a slight disaster, the greenhouse blew over and everything went everywhere. So after I replanted everything and tied the greenhouse to the playhouse everything seemed to grow well.

The kids helped for a while!! they liked the raking best!

It's all planted out anyway and I guess we can see what happens!!!

Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrots, Radish, Runner beans, Peas, Onions, Garlic, Lettuce

Can you tell it suddenly got very windy when I was taking the photo and all the leaves are billowing over, hope they manage to stay rooted!!
