More lock-down digging

Monday 25th Jan:

Jo & I came down for a few hours as it was a dry day. 

Last week the water level was just below soil level so no digging could be done.

So as the water table had dropped, we both dug over this patch, where some of our potatoes were last year. 

Now ready for other crops this year.

So while digging I dug up the last of the Parsnips, might make wine or if not enough we will roast them for dinner! 

Also dug up more Leeks for more winter soup. 

Wednesday 27th:

I went down to dig over this patch where we had Peas & Beans. Probably put Potatoes in here. 

Did a bit more today, Thurs 28th.

But still have all this to do, weather isn't to bad, except its getting colder again, over the weekend. 

So I hope to do as much as I can tomorrow (Friday), as this will be our main Potato patch it needs clearing & muck added as soon as possible.

Anyway, the lock-down has helped us again as we can get down more often, its perfect isolation, with added exercise and it's great to be outside in the fresh air along with nature.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
