We had planned to spend the full day at the plot today, the forecast was good, dry all day until around 5pm.
It rained the whole day and dark overcast skies loomed above us as we laid cardboard in the tree bed. The plan is to cover the cardboard with chipped bark when it next gets delivered, saving some money on weed matting, whether this will work or not, i'm not sure. Hopefully gives us time to save a bit more to get the right stuff.
By 2pm I was soaked through and frozen to the bone so we abandoned planting the remaining fruit bushes (poor things are sprouting in the packaging) Wednesday is forecast to be the next dry day so fingers crossed (or sooked and stuck in the air)
