Last weekend it was finally dry enough to get the rotavator onto the veggie plot to get it sorted for this year. I say rotavator. I cheated a bit this year. Sadly work too often gets in the way of preparation work for the vegetables and the plot is about two hundred square metres, so I’ve adopted a rather more speedy approach:
This enabled me to get the plot turned over far more easily than in the past (and I even did it twice, just to really break the soil up nicely). I had to leave one corner that has the winter onions and broad beans that I planted last year, but I’m looking forward to starting planting now.
