I like to do my plotting in the mornings so I don’t usually do any on Sundays as by the time I get home from the horticultural trading shed and had some lunch I’m simply not in the mood. However last Sunday I felt that I had to make the most of the good weather so I spent a couple of hours in the afternoon going over the flower patch with a hand fork! It was worth doing as I ended up with a bucketful of weed roots, along with bits of glass and plastic and some rusty nails.
I noticed that the log under the hawthorn tree has been attacked! I showed plot neighbour Trevor and he thinks that it’s the work of a green woodpecker that was after ants to eat. I do catch glimpses of these birds, usually flying across the site just a few feet off the ground, but have yet to see one on the plot.
It rained last night, with more to come tomorrow and Saturday, so it’s unlikely that I’ll be plotting again until next week which looks like starting out sunny and warm.
Have a good weekend!
