Through the undergrowth.....

You can spot a dog --- this is just about the only thing you can spot though!

Where have all my raised beds gone?

Mmmm I think I might have a bit of work to do...... Now where shall I start?
What a scary sight - or site! This was the depressing view that awaited me upon my 'return' to my plot, waist high with weeds, all of which will have seeded themselves everywhere, just ready for the spring -Oh how I hate weeds!
I then took a walk around my little bit of britain and discovered that the beds I had actually managed to cover up last year with plastic sheeting and with cardboard topped with council compost had survived. Underneath the mulch there are hardly any weeds and those that are there are easy to pull out. This cheered me up and gave me the motivation to clean up the greenhouse.
I am going to tackle the strawberry beds next as they really need planting out - they have been stuck in the pots for a year, they do seem to have survived though - luckily strawberries seem to be fairly resiliant.

At least you've got a few weeks to clear the worst of it before there's much planting to be done.

Seeing how good it looked last year though I'm sure you'll have it all ship shape in no time. Good luck! :)

Looks like you've got some work ahead of you this year, but don't give up, I'm still working my way up my plot and hope to have it all cultivated this year. Hopefully!!
