Lottie digging.

I'm so pleased that after all the dank and dreary weather we have been having I was able to get on the lottie this morning. Glad I went as now it's dank, dreary and very wet outside. Harvested the last of the leeks, I would have left a few but I know Pampa won't use them when I go away. There were also loads of sprouts ready, so you know what we will be eating for the next few days.
Soup, stew and leeks in cheesy sauce?
Benny turned over at least half of one side and now that is already for spring sowing. My little bit was pathetic compared but my excuse was it was very weedy and I needed to get the creeping buttercup out. Also noticed the purple sprouting budding up, Benny and I will miss all of that I expect. Must remember to tell the new lady on the plot next to us she can pick if she want. Hate to see it go to waste.

Benny's bit.

My bit.

I hope to get up there once more before we go and finish the bit I was digging. Pampa promised to put up a brassica cage for me and I want the area ready. He is the worlds worst gardener but as builder and fixer he is first rate. I only have to describe what I want and he can and will make it.

The wire netting has come detached from the side of the this compost bin and caused a bit of a mess on the path. It will have to stay like this until I return from my travels.
