The British weather (I know, it’s March and therefore quite normal) is dampening my gardening spirits. Har har har (get it … rain, dampening? Groan.) Wanted to get out in the garden over the weekend but could only manage short bursts because of the downpours.
We have given the poor, neglected turf a bit of a vicious raking to get rid of dead bits in the hope that we can re-seed bald areas and probably completely rework the muddy patch by the house (note to those laying turf this year: compacted clay soil does not make a good base on which to lay turf).
Ordered a couple of big raised beds for the veg and now googling compost bins. Next year, chickens? :D
