How can there be so much to do in the winter ina  garden? Everything is supposed to be asleep. Lots of clearingout of beds. Glamour spot of the week Рunloading half a ton of horse manure and digging it in, then constructing a compost heap for the remains to go into.


Digging should be considered an olympic sport – quantity per hour with extra points for style, soil type (clay get max points) and muscles pulled. At least the green credentials are retained – zero travel, weight loss (sweat), and hopefully veg at the end of the year.

Barbados has a champion sugar cane cutter (tons cut) so why not digging?
