  2. We are UPGRADING THE FORUMS in the next couple of weeks so there might be some downtime, and also there will be some changes to the forum, how it looks (we intend on getting it as close to this version as possible) and some of the functionality will change, hopefully for the better!

    This is an essential upgrade so there's no choice but to do it so that we stay secure and the site stays up and running with minimal compatibility issues etc.

    Thank you for your patience over the next few week and your patience as everyone gets used to a few things that will change. Any questions ask away in the appropriate forum.

    Thanks, Tony

    Well finally got 20ft of spuds in.
    The weather has been either wet or cold here but it seems that the soil has warmed up nicely so I put them in.

    A bit overkill for such a small patch but tried out this gadget...

    The wizard beans were starting to flower so they got chopped up to be used as a green manure....hard to do as I love these beans.

    As Red said it's a ridger ( not sure of correct term) it puts channels in for your spuds or beans etc. This one was bought in France before I gave a tool guy £12 for it.
    Totally overkill for my tiny two rows but really easy and quick to use....
