I was on the plot Thursday morning and did lightly fork over, and weed, the area where the potatoes are going. It was just about workable, although somewhat sticky in places, but not much fun. I saw plot neighbour Irish Brian for the first time this year and it was good to have a catch up chat with him.
Last week I pruned the three roses, and there’s lots of new growth appearing on them. Sadly the white crocus have all keeled over in the rain and the yellow ones eaten by the birds. However I did spot this purple one partly hidden in the long grass.
It rained most of yesterday so the ground is well sticky again. Looking at the forecast it’s due to get much milder beyond mid week so maybe next week I’ll be able to move the raspberries and strawberries. Then I shall empty the compost bin and prepare the onion patch.
