Fabulous Fidget

It's turned warm and muggy outside and I've been trying to fork the soil over in the raised beds - two of them have only been there twelve months and they're already full of roots from the ash trees  :

I've pulled most of them out and have put the sprinkler on for a bit - then I'll get on with planting the last courgettes -they're in big pots but now the last of the Hispi cabbages has gone they can go in the beds.

I'm going to cloud prune the angelica, taking all the leaves off and leaving the seed heads.

That sounds fabulous - pics please

I love figwort - it's the first 'wild flower' I remember learning to identify on Nature Walks when at primary school

(It was cooler in the front garden yesterday so I went out there and weeded the chickweed )

The only way to stop this reversion is to cut out any all green shoots as soon as they appear because they grow more strongly than the variegated ones and will soon become more dominant.
