No dig diary, 6th May 2021

Whilst I was out swimming this afternoon, a delivery arrived that was schedule for this morning.

Six more tonnes of green waste compost, now just about covered by an 8m x 5m tarpaulin. Most of it will probably sit there conditioning for the next five or six months, to be available when I top up the beds with compost towards the end of the autumn. I’m expecting that it will last more than a year though, unless I start creating more beds.

I also thought I should check out how the newly-planted tomatoes were doing as the temperature did (just) get below freezing last night. They’re all looking ok though. I hope that’s the last time I need to concern myself with frosts this side of next winter.
