Clearing Up

With a digging programme in mind it is a good.plan to clear up the vegetable garden now, carrying all decaying matter to the compost heap and cleansing the ground of unwanted weed that might seed if left until digging begins in earnest. Rubbish such as old rotten peasticks and dry haulms should, of course, be consigned to the bonfire.
