Lots of things to be excited about, though maybe some people may not agree!!!
Tim has brought us a fabulous load of well-rotted horse manure.
It is easy to lift and great for spreading even though we have had to remove a few nettle roots. It`s full of worms. We`ve got loads spread already.
And as we drove into the main yard we espied a huge new pile of bark chippings.
Oh my cup brimmeth over.
Today Steve did part of the polytunnel .....
..... I did the rhubarb and part of the fruit net which needs a little more weeding.
We have made a start on the veggie beds and begun the annual decisions about what is going where.
I have nearly completed the first flowerbed.
The second one is waiting!! It is a challenge.
So much moss. A good mulch of manure will help. Firstly I need to remove a great deal of the over-powering Michaelmus daisy.
Elsewhere around the garden, the winter honeysuckle smells sweet.
The broad beans in the polytunnel are doing well.
Steve discovered a nest of mice under carpeting. They soon scurried off.
Altogether a great start to February.
