Having met my brillant man 13 years ago at the tender age of 16 – I never thought that the petrol loving, beer drinking, anything but a ‘greenie’ man would ever be telling me how to dig over a green manure bed.
But yes after 13 years he is still suprising me! Due to the no heavy lifting orders due to ‘the bub’ and my darn back I had to sweetly ask for the tomato bed to be dug over. So off went Hubby to get the diggingfork – shovel???? I subtly suggest that the digging fork might be easier (You know not to scare the man off the job, subtly is the key) But no I am told that Pete cuts the green manure with the shovel first and then digs it in. Oh.
I am put in my place. I guess he has been listening to Gardening Australia for all these years.
