But now, I find this area of gardening particularly fulfilling. After a couple of seasons of tending, the soil is looser and has less weeds. The perrenial nightmares that are creeping buttercup and couch grass are a lot easier to pull out, stringy roots and all!
I have also been eyeing up a few leeks - I think I'll make a bit of potato and leek soup this week!
It has been both snowy and wet in equal amounts. There is an awful lot of standing water.
