Yay! a dry(ish) day at last!

Today started out quite bright and looked as if it might stay reasonably dry so I decided to spend an hour or two on the lottie. I have cut down last years raspberry canes (Joan J an autumn fruiting variety) and cleared the area around the plants ready for a mulch. My carrot bed is also now empty and has been fortified with some compost and 6X fertiliser ready for use as one of this year’s Onion beds. 

The master plan……..

I have covered over my purple sprouting broccoli again as the pigeons are ripping the new leaves plus it’s a good job I covered the broad beans from the start as they would probably have suffered as well. Bloody pigeons!!
