Yesterday was spent out in the garden,
I have been clearing beds removing all the weeds
Breaking up the surface, I have a delivery of spent mushroom compost coming later this week, as beds are emptied I plan to top them up with the compost, we have so little soil here, building up is the only way to get depth into the beds, also what soil is there is very claggy, I did add a load of mushroom compost when setting up the beds, another dose will do them the world of good, the beds then will be covered over, come spring it will be all systems go.
The above bed with be brassicas next year, everything will move down a bed.
The sunflower heads have all been cut, they are in the poly tunnel drying out so I can harvest the seeds, some will be grown on next year, some will get added to chicken feed and some will go into the kitchen, 22 heads crammed with seeds.
Martin got the lawn cut as well as a few other odd jobs, it has been a dry week end, we have had rain over night and today promises to be a nice day the sun is just starting to burn through.
Martin and Sol have gone to walk up Pen a Fan, I am going to head down my cabin.
