Tuesday 1st July 2014 – And back to the beginning again!

Gosh is it really July already? Where did June go? Yesterday was a bit tricky to get up the allotment as it was on and off showers for most of the day. So today was back to normal up there. I’ve now finished the first thorough weed of my plots, and now it’s time to start back at the beginning again and go through each bed again and take out any weeds that have started to grow again. Even though we had a fair amount of rain it’s not gone down very far, so once a bed had been weeded then it was watered. Now it’s much easier, and quicker to get through the beds as there are fewer weeds to find. I still have the fruit patch to contend with and the Jerusalem Artichoke bed to blitz, so when I get to them, then I’ll sort those out. To be honest I’m not looking forward to that as they’re going to take a rather long time. But hey ho it’s got to be done. My strawberries have practically finished now, only the last few stragglers to pick. Lucky I don’t supply them for Wimbledon otherwise they wouldn’t have any. Still they did fabulously this year and the runners are starting to grow, so I’ll have to sort them out as and when they appear. I got another review from The Brick Castle which I thought I’d share with you.

    How do you limit your strawbs to only growing runners at the end of the crop? Mine put far more energy into sprouting runners than fruit and it’s such a waste of fruit in potentia!

  2. Thank you for sharing my review. We do love your book, it’s excellent and really does give an insight into how plants grow and what conditions they require to grow, while still being a story book. Your blog is fantastic too – you have clearly found your vocation 🙂
