got a lot of the garden dug yesterday ready for sowing peas and broad beans. spread the big bin (220 litres) of compost over it all and today the rain is helping spread it in. also picked up more horse manure last night to top up the bins.
this is the first real rain we've had in over a month. August was damp, September was very dry. the bare ground in the veg patch was starting to crack from being so dry and beetroot and radishes were running to seed. it was beginning to drop quite cold at night ( forecast of 6 degrees) - should be warmer with some rain
