And so to bed

It's a long good night for the allotment. It's been dug over and now it's time to leave it to rest for winter. I've decided not to put any winter vegetation in and just cover it with manure ready for the spring.

Well that's the plan, only no one told the weather fairies that it's supposed to be Autumn! There is sunshine everywhere - and its lovely.We spent Saturday wheel barrowing and shovelling manure and compost. Young man was in his element, with wood, nails and a hammer, building raised beds ready to fill with compost for next year. The only thing that does not hurt today after all the exertion is my fingertips - all the better to knit with, you might say!!
