A veg patch of two halves

Have done the first of the winter digs and cleared most of the weeds from the good soil and dug in some of the home-prepared compost.

Also planted some garlic and leeks in the fine and crumbly earth to see how they go over the winter.

Finally on the digging, started a quick dig on the claggy patch of earth and it’s going to be a few years yet before we get it to match the good side which is just a pleasure to work in.

Last but not least, had a quick check of the leaf mould before it finds its way onto (or into) the nasty. Still not sure whether it goes into the soil or should be left on top after manure has been dug in deep. Either way, there’s a fair bit of back-breaking work to be done. I do love getting out in the garden during the winter months and preparing the ground for next year’s growing.
