Scroggins sorry about the storm , hope everything recovers 

Went to plot this morning got pear tree in and putting a thick layer of bark chippings down to stop weeds 

dug up some more swift potatoes which I said ealier not done well 

planted a row of kale 

o/h picked , what turned out to be 6-5 lbs of strwawberrys and this afternoon turned most of it into jam while I did some planting up in garden 

picked more broad beans they have done really well this year 

last year planted clover as green manure dug it in before hols and planted a bed of leeks and sprouts obviously I didn't dig it in properly or it is to vigorous because both beds smothered in clover o/h weeded the leek bed , still to do the other one , so be warned about clover 

hope alls well with everybody
