I’ve now finished clearing and roughly forking over the three vegetable growing areas. Apart from hoeing off any weeds that appear they’ll now be left alone through to next year.
In complete contrast the flower patches are still full of plants and colour with pot marigolds, cosmos, sunflower, nasturtiums and nigella all flowering. I didn’t dead-head the pot marigolds when they finished flowering the first time, just collected seeds, and they’re now starting to flower again.
Providing the weather stays dry and reasonable over the coming weeks I’m hoping to empty out the compost bin. It was a job that I wanted to do early in the year but it was too wet. If I don’t then it can wait until late winter or early spring next year. That’s the only major job on my to do list at present.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
