Stuff To Do

The huge day of progress has really inspired me with ideas for the plot as of late. A glut of seeds have forced my eyes to survey our little scrap of land a bit more carefully if we're going to fit everything in. Last year was a bit of a folly as Herb and I tried to discover whether we could even make things grow and that.
We can.
So this year we can look at things a bit more seriously.
Here are the jobs which need to be done as soon as possible:

1) Dig out a new bed (probably for the brussel sprouts)
2) De-stone and weed the brocolli bed.
3) Extend the borders of any plots that need it.
4) Plant spring greens in any gaps or spaces.
5) Break up the soil in the carrot bed ahead of planting so its all lovely and fine.
6) Dig up the shrub of mystery and extend the fruit bed into the empty space.
7) Establish the herb garden in the Belfast sinks and any other containers we can use.
8) Plant out surplus potatoes in buckets, barrels and boxes to save plot space.
9) Sit down and have a cup of tea.
10) Consider joining the plots together and losing the side-paths in favor of one long pathway down the middle of the two uber plots.

ummmm, thats about it for now :D
