I finished…

emptying out the compost bin on Friday, then yesterday I partly refilled it with un-composted material and cleared up all round.  The dug out and sieved compost is piled up out of the way between the rose Pretty Lady and the blackberry bush.


I lost count but there are at least ten barrow loads, and I also emptied two more on the ground where I’ll be growing the climbing beans next year.

A robin was around for much of the time but stayed mostly hidden in the rose bush at the back of the bin, where I heard it more often than I saw it.

That was my last major job for this year and I’ll now be mostly just ticking over pottering, tidying up and weeding.

Take care, and have a good week!

    The end of the growing year and the preparation for the next one. Lovely perky Marigold. It is good to have nature’s music while you work in nature’s environment. 🙂

    That’s a good job done. I bet that robin was straight out when you back was turned, they can’t resist rifling through compost.
