Black gold....

.....apparently! Today was a muck spreading day. Freebie manure from a local farm all over the potato beds-to-be. Hubby loaded and dumped the barrow and I spread. We enjoyed it up there today. You can't tell from the photo, but it was a sunny day though quite cold. We'd dug these beds a while back and mostly had them covered. Underneath it was a lovely crumbly soil. Smashing!

First sign if life from the rhubarb. I've got high hopes for these, they've been in a year and a bit now, I may even be able to sneak one or two this year. Yum yum!

And finally, the new step-over apples are starting to burst...already!! So exciting, roll on Spring!
