Working on the roadrat

Day 164 - photo a day 2017

Tue 13 June 2017

Not much exciting today. I cleared/rearranged the garage a bit more, tended to chilli plants, prepped for another lot of homebrew and removed a sofa ready for collection by the council. I also did a bit of work on the roadrat which was quite overdue. Bled the brakes and …

New chilli pepper plants

Mon 12 June 2017

As trying to get chillies to grow from seed is taking a while and is a bit trial and error I decided to cheat and buy a couple of adult plants. I bought a Demon Red plant and a Twilight plant from South Devon chilli farm. They arrived last Thursday …

Wed 31 May 2017

I got home and decided to check on the veggie patch, the mixed salad bits are doing well! They've grown considerably since I last checked them. I had to do a spot of weeding as there were a couple of dandelions sprouting up. In hindsight I maybe should left them …

This not feeling good about bikes and for some reason MS things are bothering me. Here's a photo of my chillies, first time I've managed to get seedlings from seed!

Not much to say! On Monday I planted some chillies in my propagator in the hope that I get some seedlings. Fingers crossed!

Thu 04 May 2017

A very uninspiring day... The weather has been lovely and each day I leave work planning on going for a nice ride. On my ride home my legs always feel heavy and rubbish which really just kills my desire to ride so I don't. Anyway, my coriander has sprouted! If …

Tue 18 April 2017

I was still off work today and decided that I'd have a nice relaxing day, maybe play some video games. I had a quite productive day instead. I finally went to the tip with all of the fir tree that I chopped down. I cleared weeds and soil from the …

Sun 19 March 2017

I had intended on riding today but I had a very meh day. I just wasn't feeling it and some days I just get bored of riding the same stuff here. That sounds bad considering the amount of excellent riding we have here but that's just how it is for …

Garden without trees

Day 75 - photo a day

Thu 16 March 2017

Another pretty normal day, not a lot to say. Weather hasn't been so great today either. Yesterday I chopped out the second tree and had a tidy up in the garden after my ride so today's photo is where I'm at.

Sat 11 March 2017

Today I went to the Dyfi forest with Paul and a work colleague, Ioan. Upon arriving in the car park I turned on my bike to find that it hadn't been charged - the plug socket must have been turned off. Well, that wasn't going to stop me so we threw …

New garden tools

Day 69 - photo a day

Fri 10 March 2017

Following on from yesterday's escapade into gardening, today I went from work to Charlies stores to buy a lawn aerator. My rear lawn is basically becoming a bog and moss is slowly taking over from grass. A friend suggested aerating it, the tool is only a tenner so I figured …

Messy garden

Day 68 - photo a day

Thu 09 March 2017

I'm not entirely sure what came over me but when I got home from work I decided to start work on sorting out the rear patio area. There are currently a few shrubs, 2 gravel patches and 2 trees all which I want to take out. OK, I'm not going …

Mon 27 February 2017

It's been properly windy today and even though I got ready to go riding I decided to not ride. Instead, I've been working on post automation and did a spot of gardening. My vegetable garden was somewhat overgrown, it's still not quite ready. When I had the windows replaced I …
