Great garden - I miss Spring - it's all rainy and misty out my window. Hope the back gets better soon.


sneezing? You're kidding me! Hope your back feels better soon. Your garden is amazing. Sorry about the cat problem. eeeew.


You really had me laughing with the feline comment. I love our raised beds too. Here's to a season's worth of delicious fresh veggies!


I've tried to grow veg in our garden many times...much to the enjoyment of the slugs and rabbits. We've never gotten much of anythng out of it for ourselves!


oh cool. Very smart veggie patch.

Sorry to hear about your back... that's painful stuff.

Sprinkle pepper for the cats... apparently they don't like it.


Oh I HATE OTHER PEOPLE'S CATS!!!!! We have exactly the same problem in our vegtable patch and it drives me wild. I find the children seem to be quite a good deterrent but the best thing to get rid of the blighters is to get a dog!

Your veggie patch is looking just like mine, isn't it great to start a new venture - picking your own home grown salad all the way through summer - fantastic. Naughty cats, you might have to spray them with the hose to cool them down.
Good luck

Good luck! Can't wait to see the progress.

We're off today to find some plants for our veggie patch.

Ragged Roses

The veg patch looks very impressive! Have you tried putting upturned empty plastic bottles in it to deter the cats and their poo! Hope your back gets better.

Ugh - a damaged disc? Does that get better on it's own? Hubby just found out he has a bulging disc in his neck. Only 36 and they're wondering why he has it at such a young age. He's going to have to go in to get shots into his spine. Ugh. Aging and allergies just are bad news.

How about putting the potty on the bathroom counter? :o) Seems very weird and gross, I know, but I can't imagine having to bend over so much.

We have to have raised beds around here as well because the soil is so bad. The plastic boards look like a great idea! Is there some anti-kitty powder you could sprinkle around the outside to keep the cats out? Their waste might be good for the garden, but I don't think I could eat the veggies without thinking about it! :o)


I hope your back is better soon - I did the same thing when I was pregnant - coughing though!


that's a great veg patch you've got there Ali. We got as far as herbs (rosemary, thyme, tarragon, mint) last summer. Maybe this year well go for te veggies. It makes ve g taste so much better when you pick itout of your own garden with your own hands. Although, no picking for you until your back is better! I empathise with the back thing. I have to visit an osteopath (was there on saturday) every 6 months for mine.


Great vegetable garden - I can just picture Peter Rabbit skipping through there on his way to pick a few crisp, green beans. Shame about the cats - apparently dried lion poo is a good deterent - if you don't have any knocking about and are not next door to the zoo then you can get some here
Take care of your back - I was once laid up for a week and it was not fun!!

Sweet Treat

Oh Ali how terrible... hope your back gets better soon and your veggies spring up ...weird cat action by the way!


Hi Ali,

That bed looks good - I'm sure you're going to get tons of great veg from it. We - or maybe I should say Tom has been planting our stuff up all weekend. He's put in onions, lettuce, beans, chard, peas and cherry tomatoes - have you tried those? Gardner's Delight and Sungold are the best. The children just eat them off the bushes.

BTW Amber did jump on that fabric as soon as she got back - she fancies a sixties style dress. Thanks again for sending it.

Hope your back gets better - backache is the worst.

little special

good luck with the veggie patch + the cat poo!

my husband has enjoyed many cat poo encounters while gardening - my favourite was when he was using his glovelss hands to break up what he thought were clumps of soil - it wasn't pretty!

hope your back feels better soon.



I need to hoe my vegatable garden, it's in some dire need of tlc. The woodcutter says he'll reclaim it back into his vegtable garden if I don't sort it out this afternoon !


You didn't mention anywhere whether the potty training and the vegetable garden have a direct link!


Hi there ...was reading your lovely comments about link a bord ...I work for the company and realised that you might not have heard that we have started to make canopy support kits - which when covered with a cheap net or fleece would stop your pussy problem - its looks like you had a 1m x 3 m bed - the support kit for this would be £15.00 plus £5.00 carriage ...I hope that this helps ....love carol xx
