With the forecast at 90% chance of a decent amount of rain I set out on Saturday morning to get lots done before it came. I needed to get the last Wicking Worm Bed made up ready for planting out the Kale. 
Most of planting for winter is now complete, there will be some more onions to go in but they will wait until winter. 
I can relax now :)
