Week 2: More clearing of weeds and working the soil.

More back-breaking work digging over the plot, removing the weeds, and their roots, and generally tidying-up Plot 225. Indeed, some detective work to understand what had overgrown and spoiled on the plot but friendly advice as we start to clear it all. Putting all the odd items and rubbish in one place makes us see the size, 66ft by 18ft and take in the size of our task. The Big Challenge is underway.

Working around the celery so the wildlife has somewhere to go, and ignoring the huge rubbish pile.

Have found the edge of the plot and the soil isn't half bad.
