A task list for 2009

My Potting shed.

Yesterday as I sat here, bored, in front of my work pc I decided it was time to commit myself to a list of tasks for 2009. These are some of the jobs I want to do out in the garden that will make it more enjoyable for us.

Here they are in no particular order.

  1. Put a green roof on the potting shed, I plan to seed it with wild flowers.
  2. Run power to the potting shed and greenhouse. at the moment I have nowhere to run a propagator.
  3. Clear stable and make it into a garden room/ studio for reading and photography.
  4. Sort out garages for storage and a workshop
  5. Sort out the fruit cage (it a jungle in there!)
  6. Make new benches for the garden
  7. Build a path to the greenhouse and herb garden
  8. Build pergola for small lawn area
  9. Make more bird boxes
  10. Improve wild flower area and make a Beetle bank.
As you can see I intend to be fairly active over the next few months and in case Sharron is reading this, the kitchen. dinning room, etc etc will of course take priority!

So as we go through the year you will be able to see how I get on.


  1. Crumbs - I feel quite tired just reading that little lot. You'll be starting straight away tthen? ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Well a couple of them, bird boxes and the wild flowers will need to be started soon.

  3. I always feel happy with a list as it focuses my mind and then it is satisfying to cross things off. I have nearly finished decided what to do with my back garden so will do a list of jobs soon

  4. Everyone seems busy planning for this year and are so meticulous! I feel like a slacker. LOL! No, seriously.

  5. Wow Gary, I'm impressed! That list would probably take me 5 years to get through... if I had the talent and skills to get it done.

  6. LOL - I just said to Shedman this morning we need to start a list of tasks - it's good to have a list - yours seems to have quite a lot of "construction" on it

  7. Wow, you have a list of projects. I like the potting shed. I loved your picture of it. I have to say though, a green roof would be something!

  8. I should just say these don't all have to be done in the next few weeks, they are plans for the year! The one that excites me most is the green roof, I have been planning that for a while.

  9. You'll definitely have to let us know how things go with your green roof installation (as well as your other projects). I want one (green roof) on my (imaginary) shed (once it's built)...maybe next year...~Aerie-el

  10. Well, I'm not Sharon, but I was glad to see you said the kitchen and other house things will be the priorities. Looks like you will be busy for awhile. I hope that back heals soon. Our dog loves to run and find stinky things too.

  11. It looks like your potting shed work bench will be very busy. I will be very interested to see your green roof, and the other projects too. Lists, especially public ones, are great for keeping you focused.
