Ready to plant

I finally got out in the garden today. I'm really late to be digging over and adding manure, hopefully not too late, but at least it's done. I've decided to scale back what I'm growing this year as I don't want to take on too much work. I'm sticking with onions, lettuce, rocket, tomatoes, potatoes and strawberries. That's it. I have two varieties of potato and onion ready to go out, so I may try and plant them tomorrow. Here is what it looks like now. I wish I'd taken a before shot, the whole thing was overgrown with Couch Grass.

My rockery and herb garden are still looking a little worse for wear though. Looks a little pathetic, doesn't it?

I'm avoiding doing the stuff that REALLY needs doing, that I don't want to do...like paying bills, ironing, and coursework. I am currently 4 weeks behind on my reading and have an essay to do too. If I'm out in the garden then the stack of books can't taunt me!
