November 1st Week





According to My Middleton in Dig On For Victory we have 6 tasks this week :

1) Secure Clamps. - refers to the storage of harvested rootcrops outdoors.

5) Sow Broad Beans and Onions. - 
6) Fruit Tree Branches. - Prune by removing dead branches, crowded branches and if two branches cross, remove one.
