Used a mattock to remove a few stubborn roots which were missed by the grinder from where I had a 10m privet hedge removed in the front garden. That warmed me up nicely in the bone-chilling wind! Then put in 5 fence posts and screwed on the horizontals for the trellis I'm building which will replace the hedge. Added some fish, blood and bone to help replenish the soil. Looking forward to finishing the trellis tomorrow before adding 30 x 50l bags of FYM to the 'new' slightly raised flower bed below. I'll add a couple of barrows of excess soil from my veg plot too, knowing that will be full of worms.
I love doing physical work at this time of the year once I get started. The problem I have these days is it does take a bit longer to get started!
