Following on from last Thursday’s post I’ve been digging out a lot more compost, which is nearby, and barrowing it to the plot. I’ve now spread some just about all over, having lightly hoed the ground first.
At the weekend I’m hoping to fine sieve more to fill a couple of old compost bags, which should save me having to buy any next year.
As I’ve done all this I probably won’t empty my compost heap early next year but will leave it for another year. With what I add during the year there should be plenty of good compost when I do eventually turn it out.
Yesterday I saw that I was the Day 9 winner of the Chiltern Seeds Advent Calendar giveaway on Facebook, and two packets of Sweet Peas Flamingo Flamenco Mix and Mulberry Mix are on the way to me. As I won’t be using all the seeds I’ll do a giveaway for some of these, perhaps along with a few others, early in the new year.
Have a good weekend!
