    Dug up three chicory roots to take home for forcing.
    Cut back the cape gooseberries to stumps, packed the stumps with runner bean "straw", and then covered them with buckets, all to try and overwinter them.

    Mulched a couple of beds and collected a large trailer load of rabbit poo to start the next batch of compost.

    Ordered a small heated propagator as pretty sure Santa wont bring me one this year.
    Dusted a bit of wood ash around the onions, garlic and shallots. Planted out the last 2 shallots.

    Planted some onion sets today, I had covered the ground with a poly cloche and as the temperature was 10c. I decided to get them in and re-covered to hold the heat for a wee while, if the temperature holds far a bit or even climbs I will remove the cover

    Finally got rid of (allegedly) asbestos cement roof tiles that have been sat at bottom of garden for 10 or so years. Cling filmed, double bagged and taped.

    Thanks to helpful St Erth SUEZ civic amenity site staff for their help.

    I had to unclip the netting on top of my brassica cage the weight of the snow snapped 2 of the canes. Will sort it out better tomorrow once its light.

    Finished filling my new bed with soil taken from the communal compost bin at the allotment. It's more soil than compost, despite being a "compost" bin, and no one else seems to want it (it's just been growing and growing every year, with people using it only to dump stuff and never emptying it), so I figured I'd help myself. If anything I'm probably doing them a favour, as the pallet bins were full to overflowing, whereas now they actually have room to dump more waste. Also added four sacks of manure to the bed.

    Moved the last couple of buckets of lettuce into my GH seeing as hail stones were on the way. I'd just finished as the garden was coated with what looked like polystyrene balls.

    I did this yesterday, but I pulled up all my frosted pepper plants, cut down my asparagus, and took down my bean frames and removed the plants from them. Then I bagged all that up to take back home to shred.

    Cheaper than gym membership.
    Then come to me and do it in my garden too!
