Arrived at the plot yesterday to find that some of my plot neighbours had kindly donated me a dozen or so bags of garden waste to fuel my industrial compost production project. The heap was massively over full by the time I'd emptied the bags :D

That was nice of them.

Yesterday I finally got round to planting up 2 alpine sinks, itís only been about 5 years in the planning, 1 I bought  in an auction from a school that closed down & covered with tufa, the 2nd came via a circuitous route from my late grandparents land.
Bought the plants at Wyevales event on Thursday evening with 15% off. I dread to add up how much theyíve cost all told, cement,sand,peat,gravel, grit, compost etc. I do know the bought sink cost me £70 but donít tell my hubby lol

I carried on digging out the strawberry bed - i've got about a 4ft length left to do. And got lots of potatoes from that!
and then collected some pallets and made a compost bin!

Finished off bed 2 by topping up with 4" horse muck and 2" compost from the bins , now ready for spring planting 👌😄

Also collected 1 jumbo bucket of seaweed for bed 1 I need another 5 of these so that this bed has a 4" covering then I will top off with 4 inches compost

Popped down to the plot to shut the polytunnel doors and spotted a pheasant having a wander around!

Pulled down the bean triangle, and harvested the last of the carrots. Need to winter dig, and I have some left over compost, the bottom half of the compost bin needs to be emptied plus some wood ash. I'll pile the lot in and turn the patch over.
Cheers

This morning hubby turned the hot composting compost heat(Berkeley method of composting to a degree,Iíve not been able to follow it to the letter) whilst I went in the fruit cage & removed all the strawberry plants,not a good idea around the fruit bushes, made picking the strawberries difficult, pruned the cherry tree & hoped it isnít too late, then massacred the gooseberry bushes to make them into cordons next year & less dangerous to pick, then pruned the currant bushes, looks much better in there now, just to sort out the blackberries & take the top netting off. Hubby removed the musty frame & stashed it all away. He brought the pruning home so now Iím off out to shred them & then take them back to add to the compost bin.

Work today Not strictly on my plot 😱

Had the day off so I Filled the beds in my sons new polytunnel with 2-3 inches of seaweed collected after last nights storms and 4-5 inches of horse muck
That should be a hell of a productive polytunnel for him next year!!

Am I the only one who smiles when I hear there are storms and high winds coming linked with a high tide I collected 12 bucketfuls in no time today 😴😴

Having spent the whole day getting soaked setting up the fireworks event at my son's school today, I think I can safely say, yes you are the only one who was smiling at today's weather ;)

Well Iím trying to undo last yearís neglect so Iíve tidied up my plot edges - last nightís downpour helped greatly it turned over pretty easily  - ok exposed thick bindweed roots but Iíve dealt with it before I can again.  Sorted out my storage area so I could store the 9 sacks of pidgeon manure I picked up yesterday so they are covered and out the way they can just rot away.

Spent a couple of hours on the plot with OH.  He harvested three rows of Potatoes (only two more to go) and started strimming the edges.  I cleared the Pea bed and planted two rows of broad beans.  Also planted some garlic.  Hoping to get the bean bed cleared later this week as the boards around it have started rotting so need replacing and I want to get the bean trench started so that is our next job.
