Given that the weather has been a bit better this weekend and I have broad bean, runner bean and courgette seeds germinating in the shed I thought I had better get started and prep the vegetable bed.
As usual you turn your back for a couple of days and all the weeds wake up and try and take over!
|The Before Picture|
As you can see there are plenty of dandelions which I wanted to dig up before they seeded themselves everywhere. Amongst them were horsetails and bindweed as well as the dried stalks of the Jerusalem artichokes of last year.
Two hours of hard digging later (spread over two days)...
|That Looks Better!|
Of course I was supervised by two of our cats...
|Fitz - The handsome one!|
|Latte - Who had been rolling in the dust!|
Hopefully the weather will be good next weekend so we can get out and do the other bed. Otherwise by the time we come back from holiday we will be facing fully grown triffids!
