Took some cardboard, garden rubbish and more chip up to tip in the trenches. Everything still frozen might be a bit colder than yesterday. I'm off work for a couple of days so will try and get another two car loads up there, it will be nice to get the woodchip gone and get my drive back at some point.
I got some free daff bulbs when I bought some sale alliums, I didn't really want them for the garden as they are mixed. Going to put them in the lotment, found a suitable place but ground is frozen. Eventually I'd like a line of bulbs all down one side, could make it fairly cheaply with sale bulbs but I've got enough projects on the go and too much clay.
Took some bird food up the lotment, a robin bounces out the hedge everytime I take the woodchip up but I know there're no bugs in there - packed it myself. Took a flimsy heart chip feeder and a coconut half for the plum tree and chucked some stuff on the ground. Took a water bowl but the tap is frozen.
Pleased with my Broadholme Beauty apple tree stick, it now has fuzzy antlers of growth for next year and this year has grown a new leading twig of about 8".
Haven't received my fruit order yet but I imagine it'll be here before Xmas, got a crab apple and raspberries. Thought there was something else but can't think what.
