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 – unloading 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?
