I arrived on site around lunchtime and was not surprised to find nobody around. It’s been a devil of a week with the weather, either heavy rain or light rain nearly every day with the exception of Wednesday, but typical, I was in central London that day.
Am not sure what I was expecting to achieve by visiting today. I opened the shed but it was even to dull for a cuppa tea. Checking the temperature gauge it told me the lowest point these past few days had reached -6*c!
Some positives did come out of my visit. It gave me the time to just walk around the plot and plan what needed to be done next. The two beds outside the tea shed have never been touched. The plan was to leave these until Spring but on reflection, on the next dry day (whenever that will be), I’ll strim the grass to ground level and cover with a large sheet of plastic – similar to Bed 3. At least that way any growth will be stopped from taking hold.

The ground in Bed 1 and Bed 2 is very uneven and from what I can see I’m guessing it was used to grow potatoes. There is also a difference in height between Bed 2 and Bed 3, a difference of around 1ft. There is a large area of iron sheeting which may have been a compost bin.
