Well done to Aljaz Bedene on winning his first round singles match and to Andy Murray and Dom Inglot on winning their first round doubles. Andy plays his first singles today and Jamie his first doubles, so you can guess where I will be this afternoon:)
The past few days of nice weather, have seen DB emptying the compost bin, and me sieving through two sieves to remove stones, lumps etc. We never have much in the bin, maybe 18" or so but is is in lovely condition once sieves and a great boost to the garden.
Each raised bed received about 1/2" - 1", the tomato and bean bed down the drive had a good dollop of the coarser compost, the fruit trees around the garden also received some, as well as all the plants in the fruit cage.
The still in use bin will now be tossed into the empty bin, along with loads of shredded paper then closed down until next spring. The freshly emptied bin will then be used until next Spring, when the cycle begins again.
It is a good job we shall soon be having chiropratic treatment as I for sure, feel some very tight muscles in my spine area, shoulders and neck. I really could do with my massage but that has had to be pushed a few weeks back:(
I have my first blossom on the relatively new greengage tree so hope I might get a few fruit, if they stay on. A couple of apple trees that have sulked for a few years also have a good amount of blossom, as do most of the fruit, a sure sign that for the most part, winter has hopefully finished and spring is truly sprung!
Whatever your weather today, I hope you get done what you want to do and if possible, have a lovely day to get on with some gardening.
