Despite it being a mostly rainy week I managed to dig out and sieve a barrow load of compost from my own heap on two mornings. I used one out on the plot in various areas, the other I bagged for use later on. Not surprisingly the robin was around most of the time and I had to keep stopping to check where he was.
On Tuesday afternoon I helped to unload, move and stack ten pallets of bagged multi-purpose compost, horse manure, grow bags and more which was the horticultural society’s annual bulk delivery. Thankfully it didn’t rain, the lorry arrived on time and there were plenty of people to help. Two hours, including a break for tea and biscuits, saw it all done for another year.
At home I’ve sieved a bag of bought potting compost which I’ll be using to start various seeds, including some flowers and the tomatoes, off in pots on the windowsill. I hope to start sowing these during next week.
It’s been a typically damp and dull Easter weekend with the outlook remaining unsettled until mid-week, then drier and noticeably warmer.
Have a good week!
