More digging to do
The bottom end of the plot - still to tackle.
This is a picture of the bottom 6 beds, all of which need the paths digging - putting the top soil onto the beds. Hopefully putting timber round the beds - but this can wait if needs be. I also need to dig over the beds and put some manure or compost onto them ready for planting.
I had covered up some parts of the beds with thick black plastic, under which the soil was dry enough to dig and had killed off alot of the weeds, so my next purchase is giong to be some damp proof course plastic - £23.48 per4m x 15m roll from B&Q - I might be able to get it cheaper from Ridgeons builders merchants (with Luck). I recon if I cover the beds up with this I might be able to dig the beds a bit easier - we have clay soil which is wet and slimy right now.
