Can you tell the difference?
It's amazing how much can change in a few hours! Especially when a fabulous friend comes to help :) Under all those tall spiky weeds and masses of couch grass we found some fantastic soil just waiting to be sown, as well as lots of little creepy crawlies and one HUGE fat spider that put us both off digging too far into the area around the compost bin.
It's probably still there, lurking in amongst the leaves of the artichoke in the far corner ... We were going to pull the compost bin out to set up as a potato pit, but that might be next weekend's job.
Tomorrow I will see what seeds I have stashed away that I can make a start with ...
