I took my little lad to play in the mud whilst I tidied up around the winter brassicas, rescued a few strawberries from the weed patch and generally tidied up. My lad only squashed a few of my over-wintering onions so I got off quite lightly. It was so nice to get out in the fresh air after the indulgences of last night!!!  :)

Happy New Year all!!!

One hour weeding.

Back hurts.

Need bolt cutters to get into my shed as the padlock refuses to open. PITA

Pip pip,

Did quite a bit today it was such a nice day.  Fabric mulched one bed that had already been manured. This one may go over to squash or corn I'm not sure yet.  Weeded and manured a brassica bed ready for planting out in a few weeks.  Sorted out last years brussels (mainly all blown)- chicken food.  Harvested lots of lovely leeks.

Exactly the problem I have had, planned to take the strimmer down this morning to clear the paths, and when I wake up its tipping it down outside.

Been down quite a bit during the Christmas / New year period. Got the last bit dug over - all in cultivation now! And made a new compost pile.

Dug the remaining leeks from leek bed one ( we love leeks so always grow loads) and dug bed over ready for manuring before being covered for use later in the year, emptied peelings from squash that had to be used up as were starting to go soggy in the garage, had two cups of coffee with guys hadn't seen for a while cos of Christmas.
I have my own cement mixer and not afraid to use it!!

First workday on the site, and once again it's raining and only a few people turned up to help.  We still got some stuff done, new tap in the toilet, work sheds tidied up. Not all our work is on the plot. ;)

What i don't understand is in the garden books I've got and i have alot of them, they say not to do any digging or weeding when the soils wet but i garrentee when I do get to go down there a lot of people's plots will have had a lot of work done.  :wub: :mad:

How wet is wet?
Surely your plot never dries out or your crops will fail?
A little rain should not bother the soil but don't go paddling after a downpour!

First visit since the cold snap. It all looks rather forlorn up there, and I couldn't decide whether to dig in my broad beans meant as green manure, or leave them to grow on... maybe half and half next week.
Harvested the usual root crops and the very, very last of the lovely brussels. Pondered wistfully over the shape of next year's beds, battened down the hatches for this week's forecast gales, and oiled the rusty site padlock on the way out.

Dug up some more of the root crops and kale  ;)
Cleared the rubbish to the local tip and barrowed more manure from the communal heap to this years potato bed  :D

Cut up the old hall carpet (we are tiling the hall next week) to top off the compost bins to keep them warmer.
