New hedge

My son planted an Elaeagnus hedge which is evergreen and has done very well, can't see through it. There are variegated ones too. I have one called Gilt Edge, but not as a hedge.

how to bulk up soil?

You can buy cheap compost to improve the soil. Or ask a farmer or riding stables if they have any well rotted manure.

The leaves in bags need to be moist to rot, with air holes punched in the bags with a fork, but it takes about a year.

Mine goes by an overhead cable to the garage from March. OH takes it down in winter. Gets in the farmer's way when he delivers hay.

Morning all. Son, DIL and baby have arrived for lunch, to see daughter (and Granny me). Daughter's friend still here. She's lovely, very smiley, has emptied the dishwasher.

We are having roast pork with honey and mustard and apple crumble, like RunnyBeak, for pudding.

Raining. Wonder where DD is going, did she say? Did I miss it?

We watched the old Poldark last winter. Look forward to the new.
