Never again!!

Can I just say if EVER come on this forum and suggest digging over this soil again, or changing its use, then PLEASE stop me! I dug the entire area over a year ago to seed the lawn... then dug up part of it for a pond and have just finished digging out a new border and STILL I find bricks, rubble, cabinet handles and buckets of bonfired glass (who puts glass on a bonfire for goodness sake!).. heavy clay with boulders of flint and chalk! It has almost broken me! Thank you!😖

    Don’t get me started on that fork... it weighs a ton, but it’s the third fork I’ve got through in a year and it also now has bent prongs lol! I refuse to buy a good one until I have finished the hard labour lol!

    Are you going to mix in compost and top soil? 

    I found standing on the bent prond puts it back in line, though it will always have a tendency to bend now.

    Yes, I’ve got loads of mushroom compost, manure etc to dig in now. I will mulch it after I’ve planted. I can’t find the pits either Fire and I’m not digging one lol!!
