I felt a new sensation when planting out the globe artichoke the other day. Unfortunately, I needed to step on the bed in front of the intended planting space to get to it and the ground was springy.
I’m hoping this is a good sign…. From a quick search on the internet, it seems that it may not be but I think the softness boils down to it being full of organic matter after the compost bin laying on top of it over winter and mulch being left behind once the bin was moved.
Hopefully, this bodes well for the squash, sweetcorn and beans I am going to plant and sow in the bed. At least, in a couple of weeks’ time, I should at least be able to make holes for the plants and seeds. In previous years, this stretch has been unworkable.
