Spring - Lots Going On

I'll do another video next week of all things going on in the garden as it's all picking up pace and a walk around might be the best way to show what I'm up to. 
The small greenhouse is getting full of seeds and tubers. I've pricked out loads of tomatoes and I have big plans to grow some outside this year as well as in the greenhosue.
 Last night I managed to get the rotovator started again (it still wasn't easy) and I had a Friday evening working the soil on Long Furrows down (That's the name I'm going with until we come up with something else!). Not sure how most people spend their Friday nights but I was happy!
Outside for the first time in two years! 
Making a start



Worked down well

Quite a fine tilth for just a couple of passes with the rotovator.
I was really impressed with the soil in this plot, it worked down easy and didn't take too long to do. It produced a really fine tilth, all I need to do now is add some muck to the plots and then give it one last going over with the rotovator. hopefully I'll get my young trees into a nursery plot during this next week, once it's rabbit wired that is! 
Plenty to do! what are you busy on at the moment?
(Also if you have a facebook account click on my link at the side and like my page, that way you can have updates of all the things I do as a lot doesn't make it to the blog (although I completely understand if this is enough of me for you!))

    1. I'm so pleased with the soil, I can't believe how well it worked down with a couple of passes with the rotovator.

  2. Friday evening started for me in my very small garden, the size is good for my brain, I have to think all the time on making the best use from a small space, hubby will not let me dig up the lawn for more veg.

    1. I sometimes think you can grow more in a small space than a big one as like you said you have to think about it and you don;t leave any land bare.

  3. I think that "Long Furrows" is a perfect name for a plot that was ploughed so beautifully...
    and a nice "nod" in the direction of the neighbour who ploughed it!!

    Better still would be...
    "Ken's Long Furrows"

    But your soil isn't as heavy and clay-bound as ours!!
    Ay, it's broke oop nice, that 'as!

    1. i think Long furrows will stick for now! The soil in this patch seems better than the soil in my kitchen garden, should be lovely with some muck on it.

  5. The garden soil looks good. I agree a nice job your tiller did breaking it all up. I planted more seedlings today. I have managed to grow way to many seedlings. Not sure how I managed that. Apparently I can't count lol

    1. I'm the same with seedlings although I think it is always better to have more than you need!
