I did manage to tidy up the old courgette plants ready to add them to the compost bin - when it is ready and harvested a few crops before my grandson comes to visit.
I also managed to plant out the savoy cabbage plants that I have grown on from seed. They are in a bit late and may well not be ready until well into spring but I do so like savoy cabbage it will be worth the wait.
The other task I was pleased to at least start was transferring the outer compost bin into the centre one - now it is empty. I will leave finishing it until my grandson arrives as he will probably volunteer to complete the job for me. It will be great having a willing helper, if only for a few days while he is down from Yorkshire taking a short 'holiday'.
