  • Put up my blowaway greenhouse, moved lots of pots about. So much to do!!
    Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds!

      • Shredded all the woody prunings and broccoli plants I brought home, along with some clumps of grass I pulled up from the garden.
        Now I have a large and very heavy sack of shreddings to take to the allotment.

              • Cleaned out some weed and sludgy leaves from pond. Noticed a baby newt , we have them in there each Yr.
                Topped up a little with some clean water.

                  • Carried my big sack of shreddings to the allotment. That was pretty back-breaking.

                    I then dug over the last bean patch and rigged up the first X-frame of canes.

                            • Battled with more ground elder . My trial of covering bed with weed suppressant last yr certainly helped. Once have last bits out (haha as if I havnt missed any) I will re-cover area with extra barrier. It will not beat me .
