Deep in thought!


Deep in thought!

Me surveying my land (well, mud at the moment!)....all those ideas buzzing through my brain......The large pile of weeds to the right of the pic was reduced by 6 bag fulls today...perennial weeds and brambles....destined for the "tip"..!!

Is the soil okay ? ..apart from the weeds ?
I guess if the weeds grow well, the soil must be quite good..Lol. :o)

Looks a good size. Any room in your ideas for a small 'Frog' pond ? When I had my allotment, I sunk an old bath into the ground, then added soil, water, oxygenating weed and frogspawn. I like to think they helped keep the slug population down and it was a good place to stop and rest when my back was aching.
I'm really excited for you :-)

Lovely big area Alice.
Don't forget to pace yourself out there, it'll be difficult not to want to tackle it all at once !

Thank you all......I must be honest and say that the beds you see as "cleared" have only had the top weeds raked off by "that person"....hence the pile of stuff on the right. There are lots of roots to be taken out. also, this is not the arrangement of beds I have planned....so will have to be re-hashed....I have it all written down, and plan to mark out the beds next week, depending on the weather. The soil appears to be pretty good but will need feeding......it has not been properly cultivated for at least 3 years. I have 3 weeks to get it sorted, before I am out of action for a month..I need to be able to plant out stuff at the end of March.

I do have plans for a "frog pond" Muddy...eventually....the whole place resembles a "mud pond" at the moment.....lol
