Hello Kelly and thrift deluxe, welcome to my blog via Bloglovin!
The only problem with all this sunny weather - is you don't know when to stop!
All raised beds are now painted except for one alpine bed - which is black. It has to wait until I finish all brown paint jobs to do black painting. The bird protection nets are half way through being painted brown.
The compost from bin 2 (closed down last Spring) has been sieved and saved in bags for later use. I know you don't really need to sieve it but we compost old envelopes and it helps to remove plastic and stones etc from the composted material.
The 'still to complete composting' stuff in bin (1), has been turned over and placed into the now empty bin 2. It has a brick on its lid to remind us not to put any more into it. It will be emptied and sieved next Spring!
How much compost we end up with varies due to how much can be composted in the first place. Our composting bins are around 4' high, and are anywhere between 1/2 to 3/4 full when turned and left to finish rotting down. Once it has finished, we end up with around 1/4 to 1/2 a bin of compost to be sieved; beautiful and wonderful smelling goodness. My bins work on the 'cold' composting system so it takes them a full year to do their thing! Experience has taught me that I cannot compost thick, woody material so that goes into my brown council compost bin.
The raised trays for the strawberries has been put back together and the troughs of plants moved back onto it. When the next lot of frosts come (and they will come), we shall cover them with a thick layer of fleece just to keep the troughs from freezing and damaging the roots:
The trellis for the bramble is up and the plant tied in:
