Mostly laying slabs, building pallet fences and drying bad weeds and prunings for bonfire night.

What are you doing this month?

Playing catch up with the rampant ivy growing out at the base of the very old hedges around the plot.

Tending to the polytunnel crops, cutting back the trees and bushes that overhang my plot and very little else!

Clearing the old plants off the beds, turning the compost bins again & again. Maybe setting off a Berkeley method of speedy compost if I recover from this blasted cough Iíve got. Emptying & cleaning the greenhouse & clearing the garden borders ready for the spent greenhouse compost. And if thereís time getting loads of well rotted manure & adding it to both Home & plot beds.
Then Iíll mostly be laying down 😂😂😂

I'm clearing beds and forking over, adding compost where I can - then covering them over for the winter.

Just the same as mum plus clearing greenhouse when crops of peppers (terrific this year) let me and replacing with overwintering plants, mostly fuchsias and trailing geraniums from home.
I donít cover the beds however.

Bit of building work, digging the beds and sowing green manure and talking to me chucks.

Gardening from an armchair. I keep turning it over in my mind.  :D
Sets a low standard and fails to achieve it.

Giving the paths a good tidy and topping up the wood chipping, this year the foxes have had a great time digging big holes looking for worms so they are all now very uneven.

The pallets coming in handy again on peoples plots!

I have 7 really heavy duty brick pallets but cant decide how to put them up. Cant afford spikes so will probably resort to driving lengths of scrap 3x2 into the ground and slotting them over the tops...

Still waiting to clear the peppers and Swiss Chard, they seem to want to go on and on!

Pulling up all the bindweed, brambles, random weeds.
Hopefully then i'll start digging over. But i'm expecting it to take all winter to get anywhere near bare ground.
