Mr Blue Sky

Aah, blue skies, warm sunshine, lots of plotholders and digging - what a lovely Sunday afternoon. That calls for a timelapse...
It's a mirror image of the actual site
Jamie was finishing off preparation of the potato plot and the little raised bed for our silverskin pickling onions - we've trying Pompei this year, hope the slugs don't demolish them like last year...
Meanwhile I was digging the plot for flowers, courgette and mangetout. I didn't get to the end of my patch - too much hard work with all the weeds and grass, but another couple of hours should get it sorted... Oh, ok, I did stop for a few chats too I guess you spotted those in the video - it was HAHA committee talk - honest :-)
I also did a bit of clearing where our herbs grow and found where some of the snails have been hiding.
We're pleased to see that all the snails seem to have increased our thrush population though and they were standing by waiting for us to leave in the evening.
A bit of ELO to provide the music for our enjoyable, tiring afternoon. You'll be humming it all day now, whether you like it or not :-)

  1. I did notice that the chats took up quite a bit of time on the video. It's good to know that you have a population of song thrushes. It's a while since I noticed any around us.

  3. Lots of snails there. Great job! Preparing the soil is really tiring.
