Plot update 15-17th May 2015

Finally after several frustrating weeks of recovering from back procedure could get back to whipping the plot into shape. With time split between the plot and the garden through Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday managed to start to get things back on track.

All main beds weeded and dug over, and all but 5 ready to plant up by Spring Bank Weekend. Just have the perimeter Raspberry/Strawberry beds to weed now.
