Sunday 30 April
Another bout of heavy digging. Just about all of it done now, including some bits that haven't been done in (it feels like) living memory. I'm having to 'steal' time at the allotment because we're also trying to move house and there are loads of jobs to do. Spent the afternoon cutting the [miles-long] hedge at home and mastered the tidying up by the two-tarpaulin trick, only to discover that the resulting heap of clippings was too heavy to move! Somehow got to get it up a flight of stairs, into the car and off to the tip while not having a hernia. There's a lot to be said for fences!
