Face lift

Bit of a change to the background of the blog. Change is good.

MUCH work done in the garden yesterday. We used some of our own compost for the first time. It has been busy breaking down with the help of thousands of worms (seems like it when we look inside), and the result was a fresh smelling mixture, with a lot of egg shells! The raised bed got a load of it in preparation for some late planting. The potatoes were thinned out, with the view to getting a bigger crop per plant (all in pots/bags this year). A quick trip to the garden centre to get MORE compost, (not all of ours is ready yet.) Quite a few aches last night from all the lifting and digging, but, what a wonderful feeling!
