An extremely tiring weekend but very productive and satisfying. I completed digging over the original veggie plot and planted my early potatoes and parsnip. My son joined in and planted a container of carrots and I planted some leek seed. On a roll :)
My husband started on digging over the new section but it was slow progress when we discovered a lot of glass and concrete where a previous owner has turfed over a broken greenhouse and base! Great!
Saturday afternoon was spent tree-felling. A neighbour of my parents has a tree down in their field and we were welcome to remove it. It is an enormous willow and after 2.5 hours had only removed one branch (a big branch at that...) but the haul of wood was worthwhile. We'll have another go this weekend. The wood store will be looking quite healthy and ready for next Winter.
