In my case, not really.  But I have ordered some seeds from Kings, and I'm still hopeful I might get a trailer load of manure arrive sometime. Maybe. The farm work to their own timetable !

If we get a nice day, I have some vine and apple tree winter pruning to do. Perhaps I'll save that for when I'm feeling overly plump and in need of fresh air after Christmas !

One of my jobs (on days when the weather is nice!) is to begin to dig out the stump of the Mountain Ash which died a couple of years ago - we now know it was honey fungus, or something related, which is why we want to get all the old wood out. I can't dig for long, so dug an experimental trench around the trunk. Every time I dug the spade in it struck stones and rock. It looks as if the tree had been planted into a pile of rubble - so not really surprising that it didn't entirely thrive. I'll now be working with a trowel, doing a bit at a time, and getting all the stones and half bricks out!

I sneaked a bit of tidying up at the weekend. I was supposed to be collecting greenery for Mrs C-H to make the wreath, but I think I got away with it. Cleared out the remains of dead pepper plants and cucumbers, and bagged up the spent compost to go to the lotty, where I'll dig it in to the area where I want to sow carrots next year, to lighten up my clay a bit for them.

I have received a really generous parcel from an internet friend on another forum (yes, others do exist !). 13 varieties of chilli ranging from hot to b****y hot, 4-6 of each type to sample. But the best thing of course, is they have seeds in them Very Happy I shall be saving those. Anyone else on here grow hot stuff ? I can put some in the seed swap if so, if we are still up for it.
