I've hardly dared visit Haddock's over the last couple of months, the sight of it has been just too depressing.
Of course I have to descend daily to feed and water my two useless Black Maran hens, but I always cast my eyes away from the veg' plot.
There are a few remaining Kale plants, and a huge quantity of Parsley, but that's about it. The Rhubarb is just showing beneath its forcing pot, and all my 'scrumped' soft fruit cuttings are looking good. I also recently rescued a small piece of Artichoke plant, which has taken well.
So, you can imagine how pleased I was, after a few days of reasonable sunshine, to be able to get onto the soil with my rotovator. It only took the top weeds off but will probably help with my no digging policy; maybe I'll even be able to get my red Onions in soon. I'll go over it again after some rain.
The Rotovator misbehaved very badly after it's winter sojourn; I'm surprised it even went at all. WD40 saved the day.
Doesn't really look that much different, does it.
Cro Magnon is unwell.
