March; out like a lamb.
Glorious day: warm spring sunshine and just a hint of cool in the breeze. Absolutely no question of staying indoors. We were both out in the garden all day.
We cleared up another of the areas left to rack and ruin by the previous occupants; all overgrown with thistles and nettles with, what at first appeared to be, some polythene sheeting amoung the weeds.
It turned out to have been, long ago, an old polytunnel. Everything was collapsed to ground level and overgrown with turf. It was a complete bugger to dig out.
Still, by the end of the day you could see where we had been. The bulk of the plastic is out anf burned. The usual assortment of stones, brinks and strange random bits of metal were dug out and sorted. We finally managed to get the lawnmower over the area. We'll treat is as law for while until the weeds are under control and then take it from there.
The E-Bay shredder works a treat. Super machine. All the old tree prunigns are now on the compost heap.
