Dealing with garden waste

Mike , not seen you posts lately , hope you are keeping well

Agree about digging , on the other half of my allottment , brother in law did the main digging then I dug it again before winter and have been digging each bed again before planting , it has worked well for me and reduced the weeds down to a manageable problem 

however I have shredded waste paths which I have used weed killer on , nearly organic

Gardengirl , lots of good advice , all I would say is you need to feel comfortable with it

Wish I had taken a picture of a plot that the Ass eventually throw the person off , it was terrible she had far to many chances to sort it out , upto 4 layers of carpet , enough moaning 

I wish you well  and remember a bit at a time , hope you take one on I'm sure you will enjoy it
