1) the swing will come down to make way for the polytunnel. This will connect via a cunning door arrangement to...
2) the fruit cage, which will be expanded x 2 possibly x 3 so we can plant strawberries and blackcurrants next year
3) a hedge will be planted to form the outline of the official vegetable plot area. This will encompass the existing fruit trees, fruit cage, raised beds and the polytunnel when it goes up which will be soon. Gravel and/or flagstones paths between the veg beds to replace grass and decrease the number of b*****d slugs
4) the hens will likely move to the top left of the garden so their numbers can be expanded
5) the large potting shed, which has a concrete floor and brick base rising to about 2 feet tall will have its wooden walls and roof removed to be replaced with glazing to magic it into a heated greenhouse. If the grapevine behaves it will be allowed access to the greenhouse to grow in comfort and much grapiness. The base may be extended to make a 'super greenhouse' because if you're gonna have a greenhouse, have a big 'un
6) the current and quite tatty greenhouse will be removed leaving a space just right for quail (but Andy doesn't know this yet as it has only JUST occurred to me!)
7) the garage will be demolished and replaced with an art and craft studio, to include a loo, sink and maybe shower. Big glass windows to be set on both sides to enjoy both the view across the fields on one side and onto our lovely court yard t'other
8) a gazebo for the sitting in the garden of during inclement weather. The position of this is undecided yet. It might be wrangling for position with the hens; it might be moving - who knows?
9) The apiary to go in the top right hand corner - easy access to fields on two sides AND the veg garden AND the little orchard. Also, sunny and sheltered, not too hot and next to the oak tree under which I can oft be found sitting and reading and writing and thinking. And, next year, bee watching
10) The lower garden (between the goat willow and the top end of the courtyard) to be developed further as a relaxing, sitting, full-of-flowers proper cottage garden space.
