More progress

Better weather now so onwards with the new plot. I have cleared the far path and begun to lay turf. This is coming from the undug area so 2 jobs in one go!

At last the rain has stopped

After about 9 weeks of almost continuous soggy, snowy, rainy days during which it has been impossible to advance any more with the new plot, this morning was fine, bright and dry. It was still a little soggy underfoot and demanded wellies but I managed to advance the trench another couple of feet. It's much harder work than I remember but I suppose I am a little out of condition with the long lay off!

Just glad to be back on the ground....
