Today has been an interesting day, I found something old, well it's got rust on it so it's as old as it has taken to rust over, but none of the less I found something that I found interesting, can you guess what it is?
Today my plan was to put a path from the shed to the allotment gate, but as I started I realized I would probably need an extra 60 to 100 slabs to do what I wanted so I changed my mind.
I then decided to add some slabs outside the gate for a seating area, and that is what I did.
I started out by marking the area with a string line, this changed as the job went on as I changed the size of where the slabs were going.
I then dug out the required soil so I could get a level for the slabs to sit in, and added sand so the slabs had something to sit on.
It was supposed to be only 2 slabs wide and 14 slabs long, but instead, I went for 4x5 slabs so it would be a good ideal seating area.
I got to the last part and I hit something hard with my spade, this is when I found this rusty thing.
What do you think it is? I'm thinking of the top of a hammer with the shape of it. anyway, I have kept it and when I get a bit of time on a rainy day I'm going to see what it is under the rust.
I finished the slabbing and gave it a sweep to make it look a little tidy, I added a slope to the slabs so that rain will run off.
all in all, it has been a great day, and one more step closer to getting to grow, there is still loads to do but slowly it is coming on.
