101 wellies planted!

I had a moment today to do some planting on my own as I was worrying about bulbs not getting in the soil before I have a chance to do a community plant, so our grand total of planted wellies is 101 with about 3 at Birkenhead School. Today's bulbs were Rembrandt tulips & crocuses. I have even colour sorted the wellies, so all reds together, blues, blacks, greens, reds and patterned and 3 yellow wellies. Surprising really, would have thought yellow wellies would have been more popular.

The Cornerstone Vocational Training Centre

Today I went to take a look at the wooden structures made from recycled pallets by The Cornerstone Vocational Training Centre, made by young men getting a chance at learning vocational skills. They have made about a 1/3rd of the planters, although the remaining ones are more complicated but I am happy that they will be strong enough to cope with the filled wellies.
