We've had a bit of an issue with cats coming into the plot and deciding they want to tramp around on the nice fluffy soil of the bed (technical term: a fine tilth). At the beginning of the week Daz & Jen had the Tuesday after the bank holiday off, which they spent at the plot. Jen constructed a fine netting shield from some bought netting with a frame made from some of the big pile of discarded privet at the bottom of the plot. The recycling ethic is strong amongst us. It really does look great. Daz also more fully dug over the third bed, and got rid of a good portion of the privet over the bank, which is where the council had put the bulk of it.
