Saturday 21st July 2012 – Got a red ant stuck in my welly!

Now the kids are on summer holidays it’s only possible for me to go to the allotment at the weekend for a while. It won’t be long until I can leave them at home for a couple of hours, but just not yet. The sun was shining today, so I put on my shorts and wellies and pottled down to my plots. I got more of the path done, which is great. I now need to buy more black covering and more pegs. Just doing something simple like this makes the plot look much tidier, why I didn’t do it years ago I don’t know. As I was weeding and moving tyres I kept on disturbing ants nests. One red ant managed to get in the top of my welly sock, and bit me, little bugger! Making strawberry jam, so I’d better go.

  1. Our plot would have been unworkable over the last few weeks had we not done the paths. Amazing what a difference it makes.

    my plot WAS unworkable over the last few weeks, and I came close to losing it – got a warning letter 😦 Fortunately I have been able to get onto it and tug out tons of horsetail and grasses, so it looks a lot better now. Job for the winter – make paths .

    • I think everyone has struggled this year because of the weather. Our allotment wardens from the council have been a bit more lenient this year. Even I’ve struggled with keeping it looking respectable. We get 3 warning letter before we have to leave, so we get plenty of time to do something about the state of our plot. Paths make a huge difference, especially ones you don’t have to mow. Keep up the good work.
