Having dug up a big pile of roots I'm now going back over the ground to dig up all the stuff I missed first time which now has green shoots of recovery spouting. OK if they are economic, not good around potatoes.
I now have a hoe. Hopefully, the wind and rain will hold off long enough this pm for me to try it out. Meantime, I have transplanted some tomato seedlings into yummy tomato compost, (not that I've tried it, you understand,) potted on the broad beans that didn't fit on the allotment and are in reserve and invested in some tiny strawberry plug plants. It's all go.
