Last week I spent three mornings plotting before it rained for a couple of days then turned bitterly cold until yesterday.
On the Monday I emptied the compost heap, which I then raked over the vegetable patches and dug in the following day. I dug up the original Michaelmas daisy, separated it and replanted most of it back in a slightly different area. I also gave a couple of good sized bits to plot neighbour George who had asked me for some last autumn when I mentioned I would be going it about now. The smaller one I dug up and moved as I had decided that it was in the wrong place. On the Wednesday I spent most of the morning just forking over the areas where I’ll be sowing or planting the broad beans, onions and first early potatoes. Until I do that I’ll just be pottering, as I was this morning which was sunny.
Although today has been sunny it looks like later tomorrow through to early next week is going to be milder but wetter.
Have a good weekend!
