    Time for a quick update.
    On Friday I felt a cold coming, so headed off to the beach for a spot of fishing, which was poor.
    Got home at 4am saturday, the kiddies woke me up at 6, so feeling both ill and tired I headed off down the retreat.
    We removed the remaining onions, beans, bean frames, cleared some of the bigger weeds, a bit of forking and i dug about half of one of the four beds, having over done it, as well as being very unfit, i retired for the day, today rain has again stopped play, it was a bit too wet yesterday after the doenpours this morning I gave it a rest.
    Pictures to follow when i get the camera back!

    Not my best side!


    Mid - dig, i got hot, hence short sleeves! lol


    The other half's 'forking' - i did point out mine looked better


    The beans, and frame cleared, just weeds left awaiting their fate!
