Only had time for a short visit today so using my cordless drill I fixed together there compost bin. It will need adjusting later when I can dismantle the left hand bin which has collapsed into the centre bin's space.
I then just had time to dig out the last of the beetroot and the row of turnips. No-one were bigger than a tennis ball - a perfect size and most were undamaged. However one turnip was completely rotten and a few had already been attacked by burrowing insects or arthropods. If I had left them to dig up over winter there would have been much more damage - but that leaves me with the problem of storing them at home!
