so far this week. Monday was sunny and warm and it was the first time this year that I’ve seen honey bees buzzing round. They come from a plot neighbour’s hives and I hardly notice them on the flowers during the summer.
Yesterday I tidied up the strawberry patch then hand forked round the plants before adding a couple of buckets of compost. They really need digging up and some replanting but that can wait for another year.
I’ve decided not to empty my compost heap, as I usually do at this time of year, as I’m still digging out, and sieving, barrow loads of compost from the nearby communal wood bays. I will however turn it over, which is something that I don’t usually bother to do.
It’s very unsettled here this morning with some heavy rain and high winds thanks to the storm that’s passing across the country further north. I hope that everything is okay when I take a look round tomorrow.
Have a good weekend!
