It was so cold when I arrived at the Lotty today, that I nearly turned back and headed for my nice warm house!
However I soldiered on and put the kettle on first thing.
I then dismantled the Brassica Cage and folded the netting away, dug out the brussels sprout plants and took off what was left.....
I also found a potato yesterday, so it looks like Bubble "N" Squeak later for dinner.
So I now needed to warm up, so out came the spade and fork and I got digging where the brassica cage used to be.
I then uncovered the area of ground in front of the Greenhouse, where some of the potatoes went in last year
And dug that over too!
Ah, now to the worms and the title of this post.
I have never seen so many earth worms in all my days! As I was digging, they were surfacing, and I didn't want to accident put my spade through one and kill it, so I spent a good deal of time picking them up and chucking them over to the bit that I had raked yesterday....
Two of the stars of the show!
So after a few hours of digging and two very unexpected visits from Derek (and Laddie) and from Ron, who both walked all the way up from the other end of the plot to say "hello" I decided to call it a day.
What a lovely sight!
And on my way to the gate, I noticed that the fruit trees are already in early bud!
