A couple more weeks of digging it over to break up the last lumps of clay and I'll be planting stuff out. It's good, rich, fertile soil stuffed full of earthworms. A cheeky Robin kept helping himself as I dug. As for what I'm planting out - here's the state of play in the greenhouse.
As you can see, the courgettes, tomatoes, onions, lettuces, garlic and radishes have come on in leaps and bounds - and all grown from seed too.
The Robin wasn't the only birdie visitor this afternoon. As usual I had numerous Red Kites soaring high above. And then, at one point, a Heron turned up and perched on a neighbour's roof. I barely had time to run indoors and get my camera before he (or she - I'm afraid I don't know the difference with Herons. Robins are easy) was off again.
I'm now chilling out with a nice cup of Earl Grey and some home-made vanilla and raisin muffins I baked earlier. They're still warm.
So is the back of my neck. Ouch.
