The tunnel is all clean and tidy ready to dig in some manure that my neighbour delivered this morning. Can’t wait to get started moving it, but the weather is again keeping me inside.

I love to dig the tunnel over in the winter and I have been watering the beds through the winter to keep the worms happy.

Here in Pembrokeshire farmers run on Pembrokeshire time and I have been waiting for this for weeks but I am delighted it is here at last. It’s only part composted and I will double dig it into the beds so the tomatoes and onions have to work their roots down to the goodness.

With the wind up around 40 mph i have retreated inside and will spend the afternoon watching the wind charts…possible 80 mph tonight!!!

It’s looking ominous out there!!
The wild weather here is the cost of living so close to the sea.
Stay safe spring is on its way

Thats a good Pile of manure Sandra, two bags of that would be enough for my small plot. I'm sure you will have it done in no time with a bit of help. Have a happy birthday Sandra.

Crack on Sandra, it won't spread itself. I once had 5 ton delivered to spread on my allotment, it took me ages with a spade and a wheelbarrow to shift it at one time I was convinced the pile wasn't going down. Good exercise though lol!

Same happened to me Waddy. It was timed to be delivered at 10 a.m. I waited all morning. Then went home for a meal at 12 noon. Returned at 1 p.m. and there was
a mountain of it, right across the roadway.
Took me 3 days to shift it onto the plot.

Nice load of muck there Sandra! Did the tornado miss you? It came very close to us, huge hailstones and terrifyingly near lightening but it was soon past. 6 houses in town lost their roofs though.

A nice drop of stuff. I haven't tracked down a local source for my new garden yet.Mind you, it'll be a while before I start digging a veg patch.I suspect I'll have to wait till later in the year, ready for 2016.So much more to do in the garden first!
Hope the strong winds don't do any damage!

Johnjoe your are welcome to fill a bag or two...less for me to move.
Waddy I was sure it wasn't going down till Jack started helping.
Diane I think it should be gone by the end of the week
Stera was scarey for a few hours but we managed to escape un harmed. Thankfully
Paul I got this from some friendly cows we know..
