|That's going to take a while to shift...|
We had a hell of a time a couple of years ago, when we took delivery of four tonnes of manure from a local farm, spending basically an entire harrowing day moving it all from the track where it was dumped onto our plot. Memories of this experience were resurfacing as the council wagon's hydraulic trailer kicked into action and an industrial looking quantity of loamy black stuff toppled off the back of it. Happily, the soil conditioner is, at least compared to rotted down crap, really light. Barely an hours worth of barrowing and it was all shifted.
The first of this year's module-grown seeds were committed to the earth, as a tray of Aquadulce broad beans went in. Germination wasn't a total success, so we may do some more, depending on how they take to the soil. We didn't harden them off, but they are meant to be tough little things so we'll see.
