New plot

This was the state of the number two plot before we started to clear the ground, the second picture shows some of he roots that my Dad had dug out, blackberries, couch, thistles you name it it was there. This photo show almost all of the plot and in the distance you can the work being undertaken on the second plot

We have an extra compost bin, one of the neighbours who lives across the road from the plot came in one day and asked would I like a compost bin as he doesn't use it anymore so now I have two compost bins with lids and my open bin at the other end of the plot you can also see my water butt donated yes you guessed by Daddy !!


Shock horror -I have actually done some digging myself ! We have recently had a few days of rain and this brought up thistles and weeds and the odd blade of couch grrr, so I spent a beautiful sunny morning re-digging and removing a bucket full of nasties before they could get too strong
