                                     and grass edges trimmed, ready for any winter frosts to break up the soil.
This year I was very lucky with the weather and after 6 mornings digging for 3-4 hours per day, I completed all my winter digging, leaving only the ground to turn over once the winter crops are harvested.
This is very satisfying knowing I can now relax whatever the winter weather brings as the majority of my plot is prepared for next year and will be ready for spring. My next task will be less strenuous and undertaken during the
cold winter nights, when I can make my plans and find time to place my own seed order for the coming year.
2021 in my opinion was a good growing season; let’s hope 2022 is just as good, if not better. Wishing you all a happy and successful gardening year. Don’t forget if any NAS member has a seed problem and needs some free advice, the team at Kings Seeds are always at the end of a phone to help. Happy gardening!
