A wonderful day at the Hill today - at last! Hurrah! A fabulous sunny weather & not too cold - although very wet underfoot.
As I arrived, it was good to see novice neighbour Jody working on his plot.
We chatted about the snow & Reg-next-plot & Teacher Barry & brussel sprouts, whilst he dug up some parsnips, & I set about with the spade digging up & lugging the other three currant bushes from the side of the plot into one of the fruit beds.
Warm work, but once it was finished I walked round & round it in self-congratulation, immensely pleased with how it looks.
I said cheerio to Jody & got the tools out the car in order to set out and fix the middle small fruit bed into place. Jason (behind retired Maureen) came by. "I'm moving some of my fruit bushes and getting rid of some of my summer raspberries - would you like some?"
"I'll say! Thank you very much!" And he came back half an hour later with five hugely tall bare rooted raspberry plants, which I lost no time in planting in the first of the fruit beds near the front of the plot. Brilliant!
I dug up a PARSNIP (hsl guernsey), a couple of LEEKS (mrs d) & a CABBAGE (kilaxy) then finished off by setting out the second-to-last of the fruit beds - but running out of screws stopped play. No matter, a good day!
