Spent a couple of hrs on the plot digging over a bed and doing a general tidy up. Dug up some docks before the roots started on their journey to Australia and checked out the broad beans. Some of their tips had gone black, looks like the frost has got to them, so not hopeful they will last till the spring but on a happy note, have lots of seeds left to sow next yr.
Due to all the rain the ground was soft so digging was ever so easy and the narrow beds meant no walking on the soil. On the bigger square beds I've placed flag stones to walk on.
Yaho...the weeds aren't growing either so cleared ground stays clear, just need to cover it with muck now before frost freezes the ground.
Collected my kings seeds, that was like discovering buried teasure as I'd forgotten what had been ordered...I must get out more...
Not sure what to do with the globe artichokes. I was going to cut them back to ground level and cover the area with muck but do you leave then to die back like rubarb before covering with muck
