Time to look through sowing charts.

Time to look through sowing charts.

Today started off with a light blanket of snow for a while earlier this morning.The rest of the day was dry with an odd very slight touch of sunshine,but this minute at almost 7.30 pm its raining.Frost is also expected so we know what the morning will be like now.Earlier on today i attacked the second half of the tunnel bed to finish up there and leave the ground levelled and at the ready.The ground has been given a slight touch of manure and all going well will be ready for take off in early spring.Some general purpose fert,will be left at the ready for similar.Now that all that area is complete it will be down to getting some plans together to check on what will be sown there in the new year.Nothing else done in the vegetable garden today and hope to have a look through the other section tomorrow for just an hour or two.

Thanks Liga.I lowered the beds to ground level almost from the raised beds so as i use up every last inch of room to grow some veg or another.The tunnel has served me well so far.Here is hoping it will again in the new year.
