    Beautiful evening to be out, bare root raspberries went in Saturday (they still look dead), strawberries bed is ready and awaiting T&M delivery. Then I've three 12' x 4' beds ready to go and another half filled. What a great hobby to have

    Looking great, what a difference! I have massive sympathy as we are on clay at our allotment which we are slowly improving with manure.

    Having said that I now don’t start working the soil until April when it’s a bit drier. I was like you in the first year as we got the plot in February all keen to get it in shape as was covered in couch grass and really compacted, it gets easier I promise (it’s our third year and in a fit of madness I’ve taken on the adjacent half plot).

    Quick update for my own records, trenches still filling with water but things are growing!

    Peas, mangetout, potatoes, red onion, spring onion, cabbage, pbs, calabrese, pak choi and strawberrys

    OMG! Just amazing what you have achieved in such a short time with a really difficult plot. You must be super chuffed.

    Really am, looking forward to reaping me rewards now! I forgot about the runner beans and courgette. Weather's been pants but hopefully it'll pick up soon!
