The promise of dry, warm weather – and another visit to the garden centre yesterday – meant I was out in the garden by 8:30.
My leeks were still clinging on, but their time was up. A good haul – even if a couple of them do look more like spring onions.
Now you see them – now you don’t!
I’ve now cleared both raised beds – and raked out another bucket of stones and mortar left over from the building work last year – and covered both with cardboard to keep the weeds at bay (and the cats).
I’ve weighted them down with bottles of water.
As I plant on a grid system, I could plant through the cardboard, cutting individual holes for established seedlings, or cut out larger squares for direct sowing.
