Last night....

Just before going to bed, I checked the weather forecast for today, similar to yesterday it said. Nope!
It is far colder, with a brisk cold wind blowing, and currently 9C, but feels far colder. I am wearing a jumper as I type!!

We finally got the rest of the compost, from our given away compost bins, onto the garden where needed. It was full of worms and hopefully, slugs notwithstanding, will benefit the soil. I ordered slug nematodes for the first time, and shall use them when the wind dies down and temperature rises a little.

The smaller 4th raised bed, on the patio, now has its own mini compost bin in situ and completes that final in situ bin task. I do have ants in the new one in bed 2, but hopefully, turning it every day (or every other day), might disturb them enough to go elsewhere.

How is your garden/allotment doing?

  1. It is the same here in mid-Essex too and the air is 'damp'. A good rainfall would save me having to go and water the allotment.

    1. Yes indeed, after all the wet weather, we do now need some rain.

  2. It's coming along nicely thank you. Behind on last year due to a much colder start to the growing year, but things will catch up ☺

    Your free compost is a brilliant resource ☺

    1. Hopefully so. I now have a bit of new shade garden to plant up behind the bins.

    1. The vine weevil ones are supposed to work very well.
