Things are really moving along at the new site as the mass clean-up job continues apace. We've hit the total jackpot in terms of plot neighbours as our (actual house) neighbour Bob and various others have put in some serious amounts of work during the week, setting fires with the brambles we'd hacked down and raked up, laying paths and pulling up no end of the utter shit that has strewn this patch for some time. It was the most heartening thing in the world to get to the plot on Saturday and see how much had happened without us; we couldn't be more grateful.
As well as sorting the outside bits, there is some serious shed infrastructure that needed a sort out. As these used to be pigeon lofts, there's a fair dose of pigeon shit to clean out. Ever the one for glamour, Kasia got down to it.

Although there are no doubt a few more grim discoveries to be made once we actually start digging, there is also, underneath of the mire we've shifted so far, some fantastic compost-like soil. Give it a few more weeks and we can maybe even start thinking about what plants we'd like to grown in it. Can't bloody wait.
