NaBloPoMo - How does your garden grow?

I am taking part in NaBloPoMo this year, you can find out more about it here

Todays prompt is:

Do you own a garden? What do you grow?

I WISH!!! 

Yes I do have a garden. Its a stupid piece of land that is on a 45 degree angle! It is basically unusable.

What do I grow? (These are not my choices, I would happily burn the lot, get it levelled and put patio slabs down)

  • Blackberry Bushes - Lots of them, very thick, very sharp, growing everywhere
  • Weeds
  • A 25ft Conifer Tree! 
  • Bushes 
  • The neighbours weeds. The neighbours have been very clever and put their fence up about 6 inches away from mine, so the weeds grow between the fences and through to my garden! 
  • BADGERS!! Well I don't grow them, but I know they are hiding in my garden somewhere!
Yes we have tried to clear it. My Dad has been up and cut everything back. But it still keeps growing. At a really stupid rate. I don't understand how it all grows so quickly either because our soil is mainly clay. 

So here we have it, much to my embarrassment. My garden. 

Note: Any donations of offers to help, man power, miracle workers, or rich people willing to donate money will be gratefully received :-D 


  1. BADGERS! Amazing! I am quite, quite jealous :)

    1. you wouldn't be if they were ripping your bin bags open every night. I loathe them x x x

  2. Your garden is every bit as nice as mine!
