I have found a new place to grow the Champagne rhubarb because the planned planting area was filled with the Large Victoria rhubarb. I just can't fit the Champagne here. It will go over by the cold frame, where I was going to plant it originally. Now I just need to go and fetch it.
I also wanted to transplant onions, lettuce and cabbage seedlings into pots, plus sow some sweet pea seeds.
I did none of these jobs because I have been trenching all day. This is the bed where the potatoes are going to be planted in the Spring. I want them to have a really good deep root run and this will provide it for them.
|Another trench dug out.|
The bottom of the trench was forked over turning up last year's Hugelkultur. I found a little brushwood to put at the bottom of the trench but a lot more is needed.
|Barrow load of chippings.|
|The little leaning apple tree was in the way.|

Took me all day but its another trench completed. It is a good way of loosing weight after all the over indulgence of Christmas. I might do another trench tomorrow, but the celery is in the way. I am going to use some for soup but the rest may have to be put at the bottom of the next trench.
