Still Digging Spuds

One has to take advantage of free time when your daughters have decided that they are taking their Mum Christmas shopping to Crawley for the afternoon. I kept my diary free of work and have been watching the weather and although very cold, it was ideal weather for digging the last thirds of both beds 4 &5.  Another small trug of potatoes and a half trug of bind weed and couch grass from both beds. 

Yes I did manage to spear a couple of very large spuds today as well, and as the water has been turned off there was no washing the spuds in mushroom trays today.

Bed 4 & 5 covered for the winter months and two sacks of leaves from the apple trees at home ready to go in the leaf bin once I have removed the bind weed from around it, or I may have to re think the leaf bins up against the wall as the bind weed comes through the dpc of the wall from the other side and I really need to get rid of it all again like I did in 2012/ 13.

The three drums of leaves from Emma & Andy's garden waiting for somewhere to be stored, I may have to make a temporary leaf bin out of bread baskets like I have historically or perhaps add to the daleks as a brown layer. I still have cabbages to clear and add to the Daleks.
