What? What is this? I hear you ask. The boot of my car is loaded to go to the tip.
I can see that. Why are you showing me that? It is not very pretty or interesting.
The bags and buckets are full with rubble, junk that I have dug out of my garden. The garden I am trying to make is a former paddock to a farm outbuilding, now converted into my home. Each time the fork or spade goes in to make room for a plant out comes a brick or flint or lump of concrete.
What has this got to do with this weeks photo challenge? Well it is work, hard work!

Me? Well I shall be off to the tip again soon. Enjoy the long weekend.
What you’re showing is what real gardeners have to do! Why don’t we see a bit more of this on Gardeners World? I’ve been carrying 6 bags of manure and six bags of garden debri for the tip all week, much to the disgust of my daughter on the school run.
Too dirty and too smelly for the school run? I suspect Monty has assistants to deal with the less glamorous work. Lucky devil.:)
Oh my goodness, the sight of your car loaded to the gunnels takes me back. Looking at a border brimming with healthy plants it’s worth remembering how much toil goes in to good ground preparation.
Thanks for the encouragement. Some days it is hard to remember that it will be worth it rather than just feeling like I am going mad. 🙂
Visits to the tip are so satisfying, especially with a full boot! Is there a limit to the rubble you can deposit at yours? We are limited to 3 bags a month so if I have more I say they are smaller bags as I can’t lift full ones! I am sure you rather not be having to remove quite as much from you garden though…
It is a good feeling to clear the rubbish to the tip. Like you small loads in each bag are best. I find medium size plant pots are good. There is no limit at my tip that I am aware of. Good job or I would be stuck

That is WORK!!!! I can relate to the tip runs – I have a whole pile of stuff waiting to be taken there, although I have to be in the right mood! Great entry for the Photo Challenge Dorris.
Thank you. I have to keep it going or it builds up and I can’t manage it all. Beautiful day here

Great images of work with a purpose Dorris. Bad luck your garden seems to be on an old demolition site!! Ps I have heard that rubbish bins of neighbours you don’t get on with are handy repositories for unwanted rubble. ( executed late at night of course)
