Terry , I just remembered a farmer I New had a problem with travellers fly tipping so he arranged for several tractor loads of manure to be dumped at the entrance to there site , it worked !

Both of use had a good day at allotment , o/h planted shallots , cleaned up strawberry 🍓 beds and dug up rest of leeks 

I pruned apple trees 🌲 and grease banded them and managed to burn all the prunings 

The moli got frosted not many left so put them in compost bin 

Still got some turnips & sprouts left 

Kale , chard , spinach and brocoli still hanging in but soon finished 

Hoping to buy so more shallots tomorrow 

Lots of beds to dig over 

What is your weather like? (2)
