corr, i dont half ache!!!!
The beds on the allotment were starting to dry out nicely until Fridays rain, now being rather sticky again it didn’t stop us going to lotti yesterday.
Hubby finished the double size compost heap whilst I cleared out the shed.
A plot holder friend had spare seeds so did I so I spent a nice few mins doing a seed swap – til be interesting to try different varieties.
Back to my plot n hubby had started making a new gate and I finished off weeding and digging a bed that I started last weekend but it got dark before I could finish it.
I laid more bark on the greenhouse floor whilst hubby continued on the new gate.
Lunch was soup heated on our camping stove with bread n washed down with coffee.
After our late lunch we both started weeding and digging another raised bed. This one wasn’t too bad as soil levels had built up and was draining better.
We stopped for another coffee and decided to go for a wander around the allotment site, it’s always good to have a nose and see if there are any good ideas on other plots.
Back to our plot and I just had to get another bed dug, this one is very low in soil, it needs building up with lots of rich homemade compost. It was almost pure clay in places and every forkfull seemed to get heavier. I picked a piece of clay up and rolled it like plastercene, It was grey in colour -I groaned.
By now my back is killing me, sharp pains in one’s area, fierce ache across the lower part and running up.my spine towards shoulder blades.
The muscle in my right lower arm is a killer (I suffer quite bad rsi) and over working it isn’t good for Monday mornings.
The bed dug whilst hubby had sown more onion seeds and alerted out what seeds to bring home to put in electric proprietor.
I’m glad I got that last killer bed dug as now I’m half way through the plot. 7 beds dug – 7 beds to go!
This morning, despite a soak in radox last night I don’t half ache. But, …… I can’t wait to get down there again today dig a few more beds!…..
