Hello all

Was cold out side today cold wind, I went round tidying the garden up a bit, hanging up all the plastic bottle greenhouses into the shed and clearing pots stacking up and rubbish put in the bin, bit of garden waste too.

later went back out into the cold sorted out emptying the compost bin into the other now one empty bin to use great needed space to clear veg beds waste and for grass clippings

Ears feel cold still and hands a bit sore, just need to warm up

Evening Forkers,

Been forking again today, grass poked full of holes, used 3 bags of top dressing to cover and seed sown too.  Well watered in by the rain.  Managed to sort out turning one compost bin into the next, then went out to get some rock dust to help improve veg bed, like rick van man on you tube.

Top dressing did make everything a bit messy, brushed it in well, but still looks like a dirty lawn.

Evening all

Went to the station today with main man helper so three of us today doing some chopping of a large shrub, an extra large bag filled up and garden waste bag as well and rubbish from behind the shrub cleared lots of stuff that had been there for ages, was nice and sunny for it

Then when I got home a box of plant goodies had been delivered, thanks Fidgetbones for all those plants, so have been potted up for now until they go to the station garden, will keep all updated with photo later on
