At the weekend I did a bit of work with the tractor, I tidied up some brash, moved some wood chip and some muck. The amount of time saved by using a tractor with a front end loader is ridiculous, it would have taken me days to do what took me a few hours.
I moved a fair bit of cow muck on to Long Furrows ready to be spread about. I didn't drive over the plot just up the side and tipped it over the fence (that isn't there yet).
I then spread this muck out by hand, leaving an area clear a the bottom so I could grow some carrots there.
Dread filled me as I dragged out the rotovator to give the plot another going over last night, but I managed to get it going first pull! I think I have the knack now and I might even write down how I did it so I can remember next year!
The muck worked in really well and I went over the plot twice.
the soil has worked down to a really fine tilth, I might even get some carrots and parsnips in tomorrow.
All I need to do now is to finish fencing it then I can get on with the serious planting!
Who feels they're behind on their planting this year? Some things I'm ahead with but I keep remembering things I've forgotten to put in!
