I love dealing with new areas......stones, roots out and goodness in. Very satisfying. At aummer's end I dug up a conifer that had served its time well. Heavy and stubborn. Lots of cursing, sweating, attacking but eventually it yielded.
Then a new plot to clear and enrich. To see that new empty bed was worth all that effort. It is now filled with heleniums, Astranias, hellebores, Heucheras,,hostas, grasses, etc. (Even got one of my anemone wild swan there). I have high hopes for spring and summer.
Good luck james......that ham sounds good too
