Day 29 – The top shed

Garden sign

My sophisticated security sign

noun: A small building, usually made of wood, used for storing millions of spiders.

We have two sheds. The top shed and the bottom shed. The bottom shed is more of a dumping ground for things we haven’t used for 10-15 years, but may come in handy one day.

The top shed is the newest of the two sheds (we inherited the bottom shed from the previous owners). Today I have given it a good clean and tidy. It’s basically my gardening shed, so it’s been getting a lot of attention lately.

I had put aside two days to fill the skip I hired with all the garden rubbish from behind the shed, but I’d completed that task in less than 90 minutes.

I hadn’t planned on cleaning out the top shed today, it just happened.

Garden tools

A place for everything and everything in its place

There weren’t as many spiders as I thought there would be. Although to be fair, we do have an understanding. I’ve promised not to disturb too many webs and they have agreed not to play with my tools. Having said that, I don’t recall ever making a tiny hammock and see-saw.

Following today’s sort, everything now has its own place. I know exactly where to put my hand on a garden hose extension joint or a washing machine transit screw, or a plastic thing that looks important but I can’t remember what it is off. (I have filled in the required paperwork to have it transferred down to the bottom shed).

Tomorrow, which should have been the second skip day, will now be set aside for some other general tidying around the garden.

I plan to get back to the vegetables and other plants on Thursday. In the meantime, here are two of my gardening tools with eyes.

Stay safe, the tools are watching your every move.
