The coming week plans

Down but not out.

Down but not out.

Nothing has been finally decided as yet for the coming week but my hope will be that i get to do some jobs with the outer vegetable beds before darkness falls.Some of them need a light weeding.All the beds are slowly falling into plans for the new sowings.Now that the legume beds are empty and have been marked out i will make a more detailed crop rotation chart for the coming year.A new long herb bed of comfrey will be added in to this years plans.This will be alongside the compost heaps to both feed them and to make up comfrey tea N2 P0 K10,all a valuable quick release organic fertiliser.Plans will also be for to get some more work done with the new legume beds.

On Saturday gone by i had a little setback in the veg garden with my shovel.All is not lost as i can make myself a welcome dibber with the handle and just have a new handle fitted.So all will be back on track.

These things always happen at the worst time.

Good idea for the broken handle.

Been there have broken 2 spades this year, must use the handle to make a diber for planting leeks etc.
