Getting muddy

Today we decided to brave the cold and damp to head outside and do some digging. We were soon covered in mud and it was hard work, but being hardened gardeners this was no problem and we got stuck in. Some children dug the weeds out of the vegetable patch whilst others cleared the leaves and weeds from the herb garden.
