 :claphappy: Phew, thank goodness that's finally done  :claphappy:

I can't believe it has taken me four days to do a little vegetable plot less than two inches square and get three halfway decent photographs   :o

I glued down the greenhouse and beans as a completed item, and really wish I had included the veg plot with them.

It has been so difficult planting the veg in situ .... probably the trickiest bit of the layout so far ...... I have done a bit, tried to get a photo, not been happy, then walked away.

Come back refreshed, tried again, photographed again, not been happy, walked away, ....you get the idea !!

Photographs are a great tool to improve your modelling skills, as I believe, rather than I read somewhere, that the imperfections brought to the fore in close up pics can be corrected in photoshop, I think they should be corrected on the layout.

So eventually I got it finished, and photographed. the last pic, from the front was so difficult to get, as the barn and windmill made it very cramped to get my camera in.

Hope you like the end result  :D







Time now for some well deserved refreshment !!

SOOO cute.

As a dog- (and cat-) owner (???) I miss a dog that tries to bury a bone in midst of the salads...  :dunce:

Cheers John,

With Dartley Coombe, you have built half a layout in the time it took me to put in a little veggie patch  :D :D

And as far as the pumpkin being good enough to eat, the carpet monster has eaten a fair few before I got those two fixed ....as well as cabbages, sprouts and some of the rhubarb. Makes a change from him eating the little people  :worried:

Thank you as well Alexander, It was worth doing, and whoever said nothing on the layout is ever finished was right..... you have given me an idea. I have a little dog which came with some postmen I recently bought. He may well be doing a bit of digging when I find him.....Many thanks  :thumbsup:

All best wishes
Kevin

Lovely work Kevin, I hope that is a nice sturdy fence at the edge of the plot!

 :thankyousign:

Such a pain to get right, but I think I got there in the end  :)

Next up is the embankment. I'm still undecided whether to put steps in it from the mill area to the station access road. I will have to see if there will be room  :hmmm:

Then on to the bits I am looking forward to, The station and signal box  :D

Thanks for your concern over the fence Andrew  ;) To avoid any accidents the Health and Safety Executive have glued all the peoples feet to the ground.... but I have seen "A Night at the Museum" so who knows what they will get up to when I'm asleep  :D :D

With kind regards to all,
Kevin
