I tackled the never ending war with the brambles, and then I started digging over one of the beds ready for potatoes to be planted, unfortunately with Bert looking on (in foreman capacity) nothing less than double digging would do. I dug every bramble root I could find out and painstakingly pulled any other weed and root out by hand. It doesn't actually look much but if I can finish tomorrow the pots can go in. Then just two more beds to go for the rest of the vegetables.
The girls ran round all day and so did the dog. So everyone is muddy and tired out and hopefully will all sleep well tonight. I know I will.
