Ff - OH says 'Of course', but it'll be a while - he's doing a very good job here. Both compost bins have been emptied, thoroughly turned and refilled.
It's woollies off here too
I've taken down the runner beans and the haulms have been stashed in a sheltered corner to provide potential hibernation opportunities for Hefty and pals.
The rampaging squash has been photographed and deconstructed and the squash is indoors - it's nearly as big as a foot ball and looks like a Crown Prince - and the last 10 cucumbers have been picked and the vines are ready for the compost heap. I've started picking the last of the Polka raspberries and cutting them back to about knee height. I know it's early, and I'll cut them down properly in February - but they need taking in hand and sorting out - they're rampaging too!
Several masses of large slug eggs have been uncovered under the tarpaulin - we've come in for lunch and the resident robin is having his lunch out there
