Freezing NE wind, but we wrapped up warm

Yes despite the cold wind, we did venture out to our Allotment, on foot.

Here alongside the permanent netting, I weeded the border ready for plenty of muck to be dug in. 
We grow Runner Beans up this netting and have started them off in the Greenhouse at home.

We didn't bring the Chickens today, but hope to next week. Watch this space.
Rhubarb again, I know I have mentioned this before, but today I spotted 4 more leaves through now and many more just a bout to burst out. The cold spell forecast for next week might slow it down a bit, but Spring is just around the corner.
So as I said it was cold, even had a few flakes of snow fall today and more on the way.

But next task is to get more Horse Manure from a local stables, free too. 
The Potatoes are 'chitting' well and I am just waiting for the ideal time to plant them out.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
