That's good with the reduced hours from March. Glad to hear. However will you manage to get all the work that needs to be done before then in hand to make the season productive?

What was that you said? Not a chance. Hmm after two years when nothing got done till March middle of due to knee replacements, I know how it feels to get a late start.

There's no reason you can't get some seedlings sprouting ready to transplant in March. Many things can't go out until then anyway - after the last frosts where you are.

There's time! I'm turning over as much as I can at the moment and letting the frosts do the job for me - the weeds have got a bit out of hand in some sections and I need to rotate the brassicas badly.

Hoping to pick up a trailer load of muck soon.

Ah so I'm not the only one with raucous weeds :mrgreen: Winter doesn't seem to have deterred them up here. Have a round of sympathy.

Weeds are a prominent feature of my spaces... I think the worst thing is that I'm actually quite fond of a couple of types as long as all the crops/plants are getting along OK

Same here - I just fear that the neighbours think it's all wrong... The height of gardening for them is a bit of sterile lawn instead of chuckies all over. :(
