Last year there was a piece of the plot that wasn't properly used and got a bit overgrown. This year I've got that area of ground turned over and the weeds out. It is just about the right space to plant potatoes, so I have dug the trenches ready to plant the seed potatoes. They are chitting and still not quite ready to go out, but that job will be quick and easy s soon as they are ready.
I've been turning some more of the ground and making use of the little tilling machine I bought last year. If the ground is turned to break it up the tiller makes short work of turning it into a fine tilth ready for sowing or planting. It's great for mixing compost into the soil too. It has made preparing the ground much easier.
