Digging, Weeding and Fires

fire

Yesterday we spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden and mini orchard area, clearing up as much of the twigs, branches and debris as possible by way of a good fire. Although we did clear a lot, we still have a fair few piles of it to burn.

The brambles are all cut down and there are only a few roots left in the ground, due for removal today. Hopefully we will have time to get some boards assembled to make frames. A quarter of the veg plot has been well dug over and weeded within an inch of its life. This area is now ready to receive some well rotted organic matter once the frames are in place. Then, we can sow!

No rest for the wicked, best get back out there and DIG!
