Now that the weather is milder made a few quick visits to the allotment with more manure ready to top up the beds. Until I can get my compost bins up and running I'm having to buy in manure. Not a bad decision as can stack the bags in readiness.
With the exception of one bed which is covered in plastic and will need tidying up next year the others are showing good signs of the soil improving. Trimming back any excess grass to keep pathways clear and plan to lay membrane and bark on the ones I will be using most.
Area cleared and level for shed, existing raspberry canes showing new growth (tidied up that bed and mulched). Pleased to note that the low winter sun covers the plot for at least four hours around mid-day, a good sign for next winters crop
