    Couple of hours work today on the ‘BIG’ one.

    cleared an area that had been a previous tenants hap-hazard attempt at a compost bin. Had 6 pallet collars dumped around the plot, so the’ve been put to good use in making a 3 bin system.

    In clearing the area I’ve found young cherry, apple and a pear tree dumped on the top of the pile. Sadly the pear tree is done for, but the other two are recovering in buckets of water.

    Not sure my impatient nature will allow time for the weedkiller time to work.... need a flamethrower

    With the help of swmbo we have simple dug an area approx 8x7m. Very compacted soil but thankfully the little bit of recent rain made it a little easier.

    Still got approx 10x7m to go to complete the righthand side of the plot before it can be rotavated. The lefthand side is a whole different beast.
