DH got it through his brother who is in the trade :thumbsup:
It did cost quite a bit but it was my 40th birthday present :D - I asked for money towards that from my family. DH built them himself too which as you know cuts costs dramatically!

July update!!
I now have full raised beds :widesmile:
Image

We had a digger in Saturday to flatten the area next to it as we d been digging for weeks!
DH is going to build a deck then bring a sturdy shed down from the end of the garden and make it into a simmer house to go into the deck and then build seats on the deck- he has big plans!!!

Image

And this is my messy greenhouse. Tomatoes, peppers, chillis and cucumbers growing- also two scooters a pogo stick and a football!!! :doh:

Image

Really pleased with the progress so far! Never thought we’d actually achieve all of it!

Looking brilliant @confusinglady. I'd love a greenhouse but I just don't have the space.
