Sunday 22nd February

A bit more burning, a bit more digging and a bit more pruning. Some of the roofing felt from the old shed is down to help warm up the soil. A lot of height taken off a couple trees and the centres made more open and clear. Apparently, you should be able to throw your hat through the tree... I didn't have a hat on though...

Saturday 21st February

Lorraine is here with my patented 'fire pit' design, which has provided a fantastic and successful way of eliminating the dry waste and bits of the shed, too. A long burning and VERY HOT fire.

Here is the evidence of the shed destruction. Once the front was off we managed to get the (already very loose) roof to fall in and then it was just a case of collapsing down the other panels. It would have been easier if whoever put it up didn't paint the nuts/bolts together. Duh.

It might look a bit messier, but that's because we'd destroyed the shed. However, pruning has started as well - a heart-in-the-mouth moment. In my mind the trees are screaming at me.

Sunday Allotment-ing...

It continues apace! A nice lady, one of the plot inspectors apparently, contributed some raspberry canes and advice. Lots of moral victories today! Hurrah!

Saturday 14th Feb - The Big Dig Continues

The work continues and it continues well. It was dry and chilly, ideal working conditions! Sort of. Propogation of seeds has begun indoors too. Hopefully soon the shed will be replaced (it's currently only held up by thoughts and shed-air) and the great greenhouse debate will be resolved.

Compare and contrast

Here's another view of the site, showing progress made. Look back in the blog to see what it was like when we began.
