Wednesday 22nd May 2013 – Picked a load of rhubarb, and tidied a load more.

When I was watering the garden first thing this morning the weather was a little unhappy. It started to drizzle and I was wondering whether I’d get wet on the allotment. But to my surprise it stopped and the morning was cloudy but dry. I’m still working my way through each bed, and am half way up the second side of one of my plots, so I’m making steady progress. I got the strimmer going again, so more grass was obliterated. As I’m weeding the beds, I’m watering them to help the little seedlings along. They’re slow but coming up. My rhubarb is enjoying the weather, and I picked quite a substancial amount this morning. I don’t need it, but I know a man who does, so I’ll pass it onto him later. Had a very interesting chat with a fellow plot holder about growing marijuana. Not something I’ll be trying, just incase you’re wondering, especially as we’ve got an allotment holder who is a police man. I’m not that silly.

    • Rhubarb isn’t fussy about the weather, not like me. As long as it gets enough water it’s fine whatever happens. Those vampire chillies sound vicious, good luck with them.
