    We have been having terrible weather lately. We just work in the lottie when we can. The main focus is with getting the beds thickly mulched with plant debris from the flower plots.

    You can see that it is coming along. We are also taking up the courgette plants. Look at the size of this joekel:

    The path on which it is lying is long.

    Well, I am not sure when we will be able to get back onto the lottie because the weather is simply too bad.

    How is the winterisation going for you folks?

    Looking good Sjoerd, have to get there when the weather is good for you. I'm not doing too bad with things, like you it's the weather and I'm still waiting for some tulips and Hyacinths to arrive. They haven't said that they're not available so hopefully they will come this month.
    Still got to tie in next year's canes on the blackberries and Loganberries, but can do that in the new year.

    I hope the weather holds out for me. I've just now finished with work, and now its time to start with my home gardens (which I havent seen in WEEKS since skating started up again!)
    Today I'm going to focus on the tubers that need storing inside, and pulling the dead annuals. A also need to empty all the planters and get them stored and get one prepared for the winter greens. I have bulbs to plant and all the perennials to cut back yet. Oh and a whole row of Annabel Hydrangeas to cut back. Monday and Tuesdays forecast is for rain and the rest of the week looks cold. Hope I get lots done today!

    Looking good there, Sjoerd!

    Mine is coming along. There are basically seven raised beds or the equivalent. Six are ready. There are things I could do to make things better here and there. I might or might not do those things, later.

    I was thinking about transplanting the seed-grown echinaceas out of their current location in a vegetable bed. No hurry. Doing so would free up almost half of that bed for... something ;)

    Thanks, Daniel.
    I see things are coming along there too. It is so nice to perhaps do or perhaps not do something, isn’t it?
