    Don’t worry Ben, you are not alone! All over the country budding flower growers are hacking at bits of rough pasture, attempting to create nice planting beds. From Martine and her trusty mattock!

    Yoga gets me through the pain barrier (and a TENS machine). Just started deturfing a new veg plot-divided into beds to make it psychologically more bearable- am working from the outside in so the workload gets visibly smaller with each spadeful. Grounds for hiring a stripping machine and rotavator.
