Operation Muck Spreader commenced today (while I can still wield a shovel) but first I had to re-dig the early potato beds because no matter how thoroughly you dug them over, there are always potatoes left lurking in there.
I do realise that this will make absolutely no difference to the number of stray potato plants that will emerge next spring of course – I’m pretty sure I could excavate the whole patch with a JCB and sieve the soil before putting it back and there would still be stray potato plants next spring – but it did provide the spuds for tonight’s supper (random veg frittata, if you’re wondering).
I also started preparing the latest outpost of my vegetable empire, the greenhouse, with one sad discovery. I hope it was a quick end from flying into a pane of glass (which would make it Birds 1, Greenhouse 1 for the year) and not a lingering one from being trapped inside.
For the rest of the veg plot, I’ll have to wait until the veg is finished with it…
