Wednesday 23rd April 2014 – Back to the hard graft…but it’s fun!

Both the kids are back to school, so it was done the allotment to see what had been happening since I’d last been. Not much to be honest, except the fact that the weeds and grass had grown more. We’ve had some rain recently and some lovely warm weather, so the perfect combination to make plants grow, especially the ones you don’t want to grow like weeds. Now all the potatoes, onions and various other bits are in, there isn’t much more sowing to do for the moment. So now it’s time to clear any beds of weeds and get them ready for June when all the tender crops go in. I’ve got lots to do, so I’d better get on with it. I did do 2 beds today, so that’s a start. Out of the seeds that I’ve already sown straight in the soil, the Radish, Carrots, Parsnips and Spring onions are all coming up very slowly. I think I may buy some more Carrots next time I pass the garden centre as I didn’t buy as many as usual. The Broad Beans seem happy and the Garlic and growing well. So all in all I’m a happy bunny. Hopefully the weather will allow me to go down again tomorrow, so I can continue clearing weeds. I did 2 barrow loads today, hopefully the same if not more tomorrow.

    Lovely post Claire thank you for sharing

  2. I’ve had the same problem with weeds on my plot so know exactly where you are coming from. I hope the weather allowed you to get on with your jobs today 🙂
