After all the rain I wondered if I would be able to do any work today so I chose a job that was less weather dependant. I needed to finish clearing the leaf bin and empty some of the bags into the empty bin so I could give back my neighbour's bags.
It took only a short time to clear the couple of barrow loads from the bin using my shovel for the dregs which I dumped on the old raspberry bed ready for the courgettes this year.
Then, fortunately for me, I found that one of the posts had rotted off so it was easier to lower the netting on one side. With bags of leaves still waiting from last year stacked next to that side I was able to hoist the bags one at a time up onto them and tip the leaves out. Treading the leaves down meant I could fit all 8 bags into the bin and cover it with a carpet. The remaining 4 bags, which are mine, stacked neatly next to last year's and everything protected with carpet weighted down with bricks.
Part way through all this, when I needed a rest from humping heavy bags, I broke off to staple the netting on the brassica tunnel where there was an opened seam to stop pigeons getting in and spoiling my Brussels.
Before it got dark I harvested a couple of leeks, some spinach beet and a Mooli.
