Moving to 144.... it's happening.....

Thanks to Carl and Derek, my raised beds have been moved from 142 to 144 - WOW - speed of lightening or what!!
I didn't think that this was going to happen until the weekend, but I got an email from Carl to say "All done" & "Just a few adjustments needed" so I popped down there quickly in my lunchbreak and low and behold it was like this!!
I am so pleased and indebted to them both. I nearly cried!
All I have to do now is to try and trans plant my onions, garlic, brussel sprouts and cabbages.
My Beetroot and spring onions are all out now and distributed amongst neighbours and I will dig out my parsnips and wash and freeze them later on today.
If I can get at least the onions moved this morning before work then I will be very pleased.
Derek said that once my veggies are out of 142 he will take my topsoil across for me to save me having to buy more - bless his little cotton socks.
My husband is off on Friday afternoon and for the rest of the weekend, and has promised to build me a compost bin - one that I can put my kitchen peelings in, along with tea bags and egg shells, a bit of grass, some leaves, cardboard & shredded paper etc. OHHHHHH I can't wait!!

I popped in, randomly, through Blotanical . . . so, this being my first visit . . . I don't know why you are moving.

. . . But it sounds exciting and I'm glad you have good friends to help.

Your music is playing 'Nothing But Blue Skies'. I wish they were!

Hi Ali
I am glad you have plot 144 sorted out and I see Hilda is in place ! does this mean you have given up the previous plot ? I hope all your plants transplant safely.
