I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

IVe pit down some red clover on tues , hope it doesnt take to much digging in.
I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

This year Ive sown mustard in 1 empty bed and phacelia in another  :)

Both have just germinated.........but my broadcast sowing is very patchy  :lol:

Oh dear me too - broadcast sowing skills are about par with straight line skills  :ohmy:

I've been up to the plot today and had to oversow my mustard green manure to hide the bald patches  ;)  :lol:

I put down field beans in neat little holes and a neat little vole ate them all.
