As you can see, apart from some semi-rotted material at the top, this is really rich crumbly goodness and will be mixed with other ingredients to form the potting compost for my containers.
Being in a compost frame of mind I also dug into one of the leaf mould cages.
Looking good, but when I got right into it there was hardly any visible leaf structure at all. Just what the garden doctor ordered!

With all that material to go at I spent the afternoon mixing up various potting composts. The one for carrots and parsnips is finely sieved and has added sand but I just use fairly rough stuff for the potato containers. Roll on spring!
