Between bouts of decorating I nipped outside to enjoy the 12C sunny morning with a nice wind. I took the cultivator with me and ran it down the surface of the two fruit beds. These are not wide but are 30 ft long. The field was previously used to graze horses and last summer it was very compacted and hard. I am trying to work up a nice tilth on the top soil, when it rains it tends to "pancake" plus it is so mild weeds had started to appear!
By 2 o'clock it was grey and a cold wind was getting stronger - back indoors to paint another wall and move some shelves in my sewing corner ready to paint. I felt very smug when Radio 2's Terry Walton came on live in a rain soaked and hurricane winds in the Rhonda Valley where he was slurping around in liquid mud!
