My partner and I are attempting to use a big rotorvator this coming weekend, the anticipation is killing me, this barren landscape is going to be a step closer to my etchings on scraps of papers.

I got so into it that I bought 3 bags of manure for a quid,alas it isn’t rotted yet though :(

It’s the day after the weekend, luckily he handled the rotorvator with relative ease, I was looking forward to some comedy moments, alas that was me who couldn’t turn straight, then ended upon exactly the same stretch.

Thanks for the interest.
As I type this entry my fruit tree shrubs are soaking in a bucket of water (Gooseberry, Blackberries, Tayberry and finally Raspberry).
We shall grow vegetables to one side, no previous crops have been grown far as I'm aware. Probably go for some root vegetables, pea and bean rows.
The next expense is grass seed and a circular patio, I want to plant Alliums around the patio for some privacy and the aroma of onions may fit it in with a BBQ in the summer.

That back aspect also has horses appearing from time to time, handy for the manure.
