spring clearing

Grappling painfully to put together a new steel potting bench (of course I didn’t have the correct size of spanner), I found myself drawn into a frenzy of displacement activity; clearing the back of the shed area. It had become a sort of general dumping ground and looked thoroughly disreputable, not helped by all the old autumn leaves lying about and debris left from the tree work some weeks ago.

I tend to go at such things like a bull at a gate. Some hours later I emerged, filthy and exhausted, but it was worth it!

I have also finally completed the new big plot, the final touch being to top the paths with beautiful beech leaf mould from the garden at home.

I’ve also managed to get the onion sets planted: Rose de Roscoff and Snowball. The Faulds parsley seems to be coming back but not growing on so I suspect Mr Pigeon has been enjoying a treat. Not any more, thanks to my lovely glass cloches, washed today.
