The big event this week was the arrival of two tons of well-rotted stable manure which was delivered by truck to the end of Honeywood Walk. The red route rules prevented it being off-loaded on the corner by The Greyhound. It had to be barrowed across the front of Honeywood, through the garden door and then across the lawn to the north bed. I thought it was going to be the job from hell, but it turned out to be much easier. It was done in an hour and dug in the following day. The bed should be ready for planting in the spring.
We also continued work on the clearance of the big raised bed at the back of the garden. We cut down a lot of snowberry and spent several hours chopping it up to take it off site. The end result doesn’t look that much but it is a bit misleading as a lot of the stuff was cut out from behind other plants. This is a job that will continue for some time.
