I set about in the veg plot digging over part of the remaining bed that I've been avoiding. If I take it an hour at a time, it's more manageable than the thought of doing it all at once. It's about 1/3 to 1/2 done now so I am really pleased. I've added more rotted manure in to the bit I've done tonight and hopefully come the weekend I will get the rest of the plants in there. Then that leaves one more bed plus a space that's previously been used for burning god knows what. That will become my potato bed very soon.
So in between the veg plot, I had a guy come and collect some manure which combined with another couple over the last week has made an even bigger dent in the muck heap. Once he had gone and I'd done what I set out to in the veg plot, I spent an hour in the field picking up a barrow of poo. It's back breaking work but it was actually quite therapeutic as it is so quiet, so relaxing that in the end I almost enjoyed it.
In the greenhouse the tomato plants have started showing lots of the yellow flowers which will become the fruit so I am now getting excited!! How long until I can harvest my first tomato!! Rhubarb & asparargus were divine, I wonder if the tomatoes will be!
Finally I watered my plants then put the animals to bed before collapsing into my own bed, ready to do it all again the next day, what could be better!
|Dad started digging the bed for me last night which spured me in to doing more tonight.|
