5 hours yesterday and 7 hours today is a bit too much 
aching back, hands red raw.... waits for sympathy  it's gonna look good when it's finished though

I bring in the tractor and the big rotary hoe it runs

I use the tractor bucket for a load or two of composted goat litter, add some blood and bone and lime then rotary hoe it all in.   


(I do apologize to the big fat worms that get chomped) 

Done in an hour or two  ready for planting.     


 

no sweat       


but yay, its planting time.       Pity I still need to transplant all my raspberry plants, was too stingey with the room between rows a couple of years back -paying the price for that now.

you can cut the head off about half way, then it will shoot up about 3 - 4 mini heads or more.  Not as pretty to look at, not as big as the first main head but a cheap way to get more vege per plant.

Gardens are starting to look good, tulips are in full bloom, lilies and gladdies are coming up, camelias and rhodos have started flowering. Dorothy is in shorts for the first time this spring, and at last count we have 28 ducklings from 5 mothers on the pond.

This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype.
