I can dig it.

There was water springing up in the middle of my allotment.  I've dug good deep ditches.  The next job is to get it all dug over, and collect up the stones, (of which there are a lot).  It's been described as "hungry" soil, so it needs a lot of help.  I'm going to divvy it up into four sub plots, and I'll put lime on two and shit on the other two.   And I'm planting a general mix of green manures to give it organic bulk and nitrogen.
