I dug two decent sized holes. The ground is nice and soft after an autumn dig. I used the soil from the holes to make up a mixture with compost and chicken manure, and backfilled with this mixture.
I had planted another gooseberry along the same side last week. I thought maybe I had planted the first one too near the path as the bottom of the hole was very rough and stoney. So, for this second hole i moved into the plot another foot, but the bottom was still very stoney. Perhaps this side is really stoney. I might have to move my fruit bushes. Pity, I hoped to have a nice row along that side of the plot!
The rhubarb will be fine. It is in a fairly shady spot, but rhubarb is a tough old plant.
I am thinking ahead to the spring now. It will be time to start the peas and early broad beans soon!
