Hi all
Well the weather people got it wrong for today it was supposed tobe cloudy and a few showers "But" it's been sunny rather cool but a good days gardening done.

Ive managed to continue the first turn over of a lot of the verious borders
i did this with a machine call a MANTIS,
I dont know if any of the members has one or even heard of it but for those who've not its a small petrol machine for tilthing the ground,

It's not a rotovator it's just to fluff up the soil and get some air into the soil,
Ideal little machine for sowing seed's etc.
Anyway ive also edged the borders with the old but trusted plank and edging tool
they look nice and crisply cut now.

The green house is coming on just fine and all 4 opening windows have the automatic openers set to open at 70 deg, so if im out and the sun pays a visit the plants wont fry.

It's only a week or so and the clocks go forward so we'll all have more day light
for the gardening.

Well thats about my days work, anyone done anything today? Smile
