23rd day on the plot

Weather: 5 degrees, a light NW breeze stiffening after 12 noon. Cloud, with glimpses blue sky trying to break through.

More digging and weeding, to the point where I should have the middle section finished by Christmas...

Also hoed everywhere. The few remaining weeds obviously didn't die of frost, even after several days of brick-hard soil at -4. The hoe also usefully served to break up any rain-compacting soil.

I also pruned the small oak sapling, trying for a nicer shape than the distorted shape which it was forced into when being swamped by brambles.
