    Need to turn the compost. It's been going for almost a fortnight so depending on its temperature I might be able to hoik it over into the tin bay to slowly finish. I have another 1/2 trailer load of rabbit poo waiting plus bags full of greens at the ready. The peas have finished cropping so can be chopped into the next batch and the perennial kale has gone bonkers (6 foot tall and very dense foliage) so will stand to be cut right back.

    I've covered the outside Strawberry bed with netting as there's signs of redness in the fruits, grass could do with cutting, but it's too hot now, maybe later.

    My garden is proving to be very low maintenance, only greenhouse jobs for me this weekend, watering and doing the tommies armpits being the main thing and munching on peas and strawberries.
