Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Does anyone cultivate their land by hand, without any expensive electric tools? First I have to remove a lot of grass, but after that I'm using a cultivating hand tool (I have one on a stick) to loosen up the soil. With us moving to a house with garden, I am gonna have to buy all the necessary gard...

Clive. Re strawberry's. many moons ago speaking to a plotholder on another site, who always ran the mower over his strawberry bed, and never planted fresh stock, said it worked for him. I have chickened out of using the mower, but use shears instead. Seems to work. :wink:

Re: Early Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Tend to go down to the plot three times a week. These days it is to have a cup of tea and biccys in a fellow plotholders greenhouse, normally putting the world to rights. This week the ground looking a bit like the Somme. Merry Xmas to all and wishing you all a good growing season. :(
