Dig for Victory: Clearing by the shed

Late afternoon and I make a start clearing the area by the shed. There are a number of pallets but they are so old they fall apart as soon as I touch them. As I move old plastic bags I’m discovering lots of wildlife, newts and frogs, and little baby frogs as well. So today all I’ll do is just remove the rubbish and pile it at the bottom of the allotment. The wood can be burnt but I’ll have to see if anyone on the site wants the old window frames.

It wasn’t much but it was enjoyable to just quietly work and listen to the sounds of nature plus I was visited by a robin who stayed around a while to see what was going on.
