Busy Saturday

A brilliant day at DigIn today.  A bit chilly at first, but when the sun came out, lovely & warm!
Three new people came to give DigIn a try today, it was lovely to meet them all. We had a busy day with 11 of us in total.
We spent the morning watering the seedlings in the polytunnel, planting a few broad bean plants and peas in one of the sunray beds and continued digging in the overwintering phacelia.  This has been in the ground since about last October and is a green manure.  It should improve the soil structure where it has been growing and provide nutrients to the soil now it has been dug in.  If left, it has a lovely purple flower that bees love, so we're going to sow some more and maybe leave some of it to flower for the bees and other beneficial pollinating insects.
