Three more hours...a lot less weeds


Three more hours and it’s coming on in leaps and bounds! It’s easy to clear where it’s been rotorvated, but rock solid elsewhere. I prepared the second bed on Saturday morning and cleared the area where the compost bin will go.

All the wood has come from the factory next to where I work, who have said I can help myself to anything off the ‘broken’ pile in front of their skip. Just need the time to finish it …………..

Just got back from ½ an hour on my knees using the hand shears to cut down all the weeds from the rest of the plot. Made sure I disturbed the greenery first, and caught & re-located 3 frogs. Couldn’t bear to chop one up by mistake. The light ran out so had to come home. HWDD has fixed us up to broadband tonight so there is no excuse for infrequent postings now now!

My goodness your plot is really taking shape and I bet you are so proud of your achievement - and day dreaming of next year when it will look so different huh?

I'm sort of envious of you starting afresh on the plot - but I do remember what hard work it was - but so worth it when the veg starts to come in.

Now that is a seriously impressive bit of digging. Neat edges, flat base and everything. You are she who digs extremely well...

Well, it looks like you put a lot of work into it already. Now for the easier part ;)

Gardening is so addicting. Mine will one day consume all the grassy land.
