In Yorkshire the phrase "I'm floored" usually means "I'm amazed/astounded/gobsmacked.....!" etc, but today it means that my Tea House finally got its floor!
Himself added extra floor joists for strength and put batons in to rest the insulation on.
Floor insulation complete - I'm going to be SO toasty warm in there!
Cutting notches out of the chipboard flooring panels to go round the vertical posts.
Checking for fit.
Last board in place as the sun starts to set.
Building the frame for the last solid piece of wall.
Me attempting to hold the outer waterproof membrane in place in a high wind whilst being about 4 inches too short AND stood on a wobbly plank over the water.........again!
Outer plywood panel in place and painted - job's a good 'un!
Whilst Himself was grafting away on the Tea House, I was busy in the garden and greenhouse. Here are some of the products of my labours, picked recently!
Apples - variety unknown as the tree was a freebie, given away when we bought 3 other fruit trees last year. They taste delicious.
Autumn raspberries still going strong.
A pear from a pear tree we didn't know existed until we took down a cankered apple tree on one side of it and chopped back the ceonothus on the other side of it. Given space, it has blossomed and born bucket loads of fruit this year!
My first ever string of garlic - it may not be the most beautiful or the neatest, but I'm strangely proud of it!
Heirloom tomatoes grown from seeds sent to me by Monica at Garden Faerie's Musings. Thanks Monica, they've been great.
And look what Last-Born bought me .........I absolutely love it and it certainly beats the skanky, tatty bit of paper I used to pin to the door! Thanks love :D
Yesterday's haul of goodies.
