Another lovely day today, a little overcast, but dry, so the perfect weather to go up the allotment. I managed to weed and water the Onion bed today, so that’s the last bed sorted on plot 1. The Onions are growing well which is great news as we do tend to go through a fair few of those during the year. I also cut back my Comfrey bush as it had got rather large. I will make some fertiliser from it one year, but I keep it going as the bees love to buzz round it and collect nectar. When I do get round to making my Comfrey feed I’ll make a little video to show you.
I then moved onto my second plot and the Asparagus bed. I knelt down to trim the grass round the edges and then had to come up very quickly because I felt pain in my lower leg. The little buggers of Red Ants had bitten me 4 times on my lower right leg. They even got one on my knee! I don’t like them at all. They itched for a while, and puffed up, but then stopped itching. They’ll really itch tomorrow and most probably won’t go down for a couple of days. Ants are everywhere at the moment, does anyone know anyway to get rid of them? I’m sure they’re around for a reason, but what that reason is I don’t know.
