Went to my plot yesterday, sowed some peas in guttering in poly tunnel and some more broad beans. Had a bit of a dig on one of the beds, still very heavy clay despite all the horse muck I've put on, dont know if I will get a "fine tilth" this year!
Sowed my sweet peas in October and they have overwintered in the GH, they are now getting very big!
Big old fox showed up, he looked like a lion as his rear end had no hair from being so mangey. Wonder if we should call the RSPCA, fox mange is contagious to dogs (I know as mine had it and she was pretty poorly).
As I was leaving i noticed a massive clump of frogs spawn in the brook, hope we get lots of frogs
GG I had a phone call when my plot came up, from the plot warden and she met me to show me which ones were vacant. We are local council run, so I expect others may be different.
Stagbeetle, suggest you dig a trench for your Runner beans and fill it with cardboard and then as much garden waste as you can get, cover the soil back when you are ready to put the beans in. Interested to know if anyone does any different method
