My eye is much better, feels a little gritty, but it’s fine. Popped down to the allotment for a couple of hours today, and just concentrated on weeding and strimming more. I’ve now weeded three quarters of all my ground, so I’m getting there. Every time I get rid of the green waste I always pick up more leaves, so I’ve got a pile on a couple of the beds ready to spread out. We had some drizzle late this afternoon, but it’s stopped now. I want a down pour all night long, then maybe that’ll do some good. Still got no major rain on the horizon. I’m just waiting for the hose pipe ban note to come through. I’m sure it won’t be long.

    Hi Claire,

    Glad your eye is feeling better.

    We met at the Grow Your Own Show and thought I’d find you online (I’m not a stalker – promise……!).

    I have a question for you – how did you find your sweet potatoes? Did they grow well – are you doing them again?


    • Hi Beth,

      Did you enjoy the Grow Your Own Show? I had a lovely day. The Sweet potatoes were a bit disappointing actually. I have been told that they should be grown in poor soil, which is not what I’d have thought. I’m not growing them this year, but will try a different variety next year. On our allotment site, Mike is growing some this year, a different variety to any I’ve grown before, so I’ll see how he gets on, and try next year. I’ll let everyone know how I get on.
      All the best,
