The weather forecast initially said it would rain this afternoon so I wasn't going to come down but after a late lunch it was obvious the bad weather was coming later - so once again I was late coming down to the plot!
I started by digging out the Tulameen raspberry canes I had planted last visit and planting the Malling Jewel canes I had decided better suit my purpose. It was rather more difficult than I expected working between the posts and bracing stakes but they went in nicely.
I then heeled the Tulameen canes into the spare ground in my runner bean patch alongside the other spare Glen Ample canes and the Joan J autumn raspberries I plan to plant later.
I then harvested a few finger size carrots by thinning the row. I'm not sure they will grow much more at this time of year. I left sowing them rather late so they might as well stay in the ground until it is time to clear the patch for another crop.
Finally I dug over the patch where I'm going to plant the Joan J canes so as to incorporate the compost I had spread over the surface.
Yet again it was dark as I left and a quick tour round confirmed I was the only one silly enough to stay so late so I locked the gate on the way out.
