Hot Box

Thanks to the kind and helpful stable owner Roger, and our hero ranger Charlie, we received a truck load of fresh manure today. What else could one wish for on mothers day? We filled the box half full and packed it with our feet as much as we could. Later this week we have another truck full of compost arriving to fill the rest of the box. Then it'll be ready for sowing. We'll probably use it a bit like a cold frame to start with...bringing up seedlings. We might also sow some seed straight into it like spring onions, salads and herbs. The manure should heat the box up giving us an early crop.
