This morning, even though most of my body was aching from some hard work yesterday I decided to turn over my veg plot from earlier this year.
In the main I just removed what was left of the Squash plants. I also pulled up the last of the spring onions, that were more like normal onions now! I also gave it a quick weeding and then turned it all over.
I Managed to collect 4 mini squash, about 10 spring onions (REALLY strong smell from them, so nice!) and the standard amount of broken glass. B-(
I also found yet more Allium bulbs. This was two clumps I dug up. These have been moved to another area. I didn’t want them in this bed because they simply don’t get enough light and the blooms are getting smaller and smaller each year.
This is how it looks now. It’s very rough but that’s fine. I’m going to leave it for a while to sit. This seemed to work very well last year as it seems to kill off a lot of the weed roots I missed.
In a couple of weeks or so, if it hasn’t frozen by then, I will dig it over again. The soil seems to be still good, the soil was very heavily full of big, fat worms. Also a fair few woodlice and earwigs. I thought it was a little late in the year for them but there they were!
The only problem is that an already sore body is now REALLY sore! It will be a hot bath for me tonight!
