I'm blogging the rather tedious subject of a midden because I'm inordinately pleased to be getting this area cleaned up with a view to it being cultivable by the end of this growing season. The area in the middle of the photo is a thin layer of earth covering one or two courses of bricks, which themselves cover some very stony ground. The bricks I'll make into paths. The earth beneath is going to need an awful lot of riddling and oomska.
That grassy mound dominating the photo, I shudder to think what midden-related horrors lie beneath it. On its right hand side is the eastern wall in the Old Greenhouse Foundations.
None of this has priority, but there are only so many blog posts one can write about the (increasingly tedious) task of leveling going on at the other end of the allotment. That should be finished this week.
The horseshoe: I found it raking rubbish from the midden, and immediately nailed it to the shed door for luck.
