Thanks Nick.I had a look at your plot when I left and it’s something for me to aim for!
My neighbours had their plot down with the tractor in I guess 30 minutes or so, so 4 visits in it’s slightly depressing we’ve still only done about 1/3 of the plot! I’m hoping hard work now pays later and I don’t start having nightmares about couch and dandelion roots! It’s not too bad, just a lot to clear, and it could be worse!
Going to get the bit we have cleared so far ready for planting in 1-2 weeks with onions and garlic, and realise now I have no chance to get the other bits ready in the next few weeks so focus on that and then move on. Hopefully taking a shed down next week, which then needs going up, and needs earth levelling (a lot!). All said still enjoying it!
Kids came down today and I’m pleased to report loved it. They did run over my newly turned soil and compacted it again to the best of their ability - for anyone else with kids their favourite bit was going into the compost bin ‘jail’ and escaping.
For anyone with kids, bar my debatable compost bin jail, I have found some of these recommended for growing for \ with kids:
Squash Turks Turban
Yellow Stuffer Tomatoes
Peas (straight off the pod)
Pumpkins (for Halloween) and Giant Pumpkins
I should add I’ve not grown a lot of this, first year trying for many.
Anyway, @kat.standlake.point and @Cara how are you getting on?
