The vegetable beds where I have taken out the potatoes and the onions are now well dug over. I decided that if I dig in a load of manure at this stage, the beds will be nicely ready for next year's crops. It should settle down well over the next 6 months. It is mainly manure and shavings with some hay mixed into it. Thanks R & I for giving me the lead on the location of this bounteous manure heap.

On my way home, I stopped off at these friends' house to see how their Charentaise floor was progressing. See HERE . So many of you have asked me if it is finished yet. It looks just great and now only needs grouting to finish it off. You are only likely to see this final touch next year. Although it may be done before I leave, I doubt if I will be back to take more photos. Meanwhile I am very impressed; this has been a very time consuming job, but well worth the effort. Congratulations on a wonderful traditional floor!
