I'm aching all over. Been in the veggie garden from 11am to 6.30pm with the odd drink break. Weeded and dug out the spinach beet that seeded itself so that OH could finish the rotavating. Dug and added a barrow load of home made compost and 2 sacks of bought compost where the runner beans will go.
Raked and put down weed supressing fabric, apart from where onions, broad beans and peas are as had already done that. The wind didn't help!
Then cleared half the jungle on the right, about 3m x 10m which hasn't been cultivated for a few years. There are metal posts and wires which supported raspberries years ago, so I dug along that bit and added 2 sacks of compost, will grow tomatoes there.
The whole veg garden is quite big, 25m x 10m with the GH and 3 cold frames in the middle.
