Clearing and weeding ~TG02

So the slash and burn went well, we had a very fierce bonfire going there,
it continued to burn all night despite the rain.

All the combustible materials have gone there is rubble and plastic
stuff left to go to the tip when possible.

The fire pit built from the old chimney stack

More of the rubble from the chimney stack

So then we had to start actually clearing land for planting, my assistant (Mark)
spent a day in the garden moving the rubble to a tidy pile and building
the fire pit and starting the digging.

General stones and concrete block – God knows where they came from

First bit of clear ground – phew!

The we started digging – me after having done the shopping and a 4 mile walk
and wanting a little nap lol, but we soldiered on
and had more than a few laughs in the process.

Spud patch to be

Nearly finished the spud patch

Mark and his lovely wife have gone off on holiday for a few days – the gardening
will start again soon, but we did get seeds in and potatoes are going
in to the newly cleared patch soon.

It is quite a fun thing to do with someone else, hate doing it alone.
