Friday 10th July 2015 – The Fruit patch is weed free.

A huge thanks to Robbie for helping get my fruit patch with all my Gooseberries, Raspberries, Tayberry, Goji Berry and my Blueberries finally sorted out. Now it’s all sorted I’ll buy some black plastic to cover the soil and retain the moisture and then put on a thick layer of wood chips on the top to hopefully stop the weeds and grass from coming through. We put in 2 new Blueberry plants today which are called “Blueberry Bluedrop” and “Blueberry Sunshine Blue” Hopefully they’ll be happy in their new home and will grow well and produce loads of Blueberries in the coming years. It was a hot one today so after we’d cleared another bed it was time for lunch. After lunch we weeded and watered and then it was time to take Robbie back home. It was the end of the week, so he was a little bit tired, plus he’d had a performance last night so I think was still a little tired from that as well. Hopefully he’ll have a restful weekend because he’s back with me again on Monday and for most of the week. It’s his last week with me because my kids will then break up for the summer holidays and I’ll need to spend time with them. I’ll still go to the allotment, but little and often though.

    I really need to work on my berry patch this autumn as they are pretty rubbish this year. Not sure if I can dig all up and replant?🍇

    • If you’re going to dig it up and want to keep the plants, then do it in the autumn when the plants are dormant. There is always one area that gets left to go wild. I’ve not paid much attention to my fruit patch for a couple of years now. Hopefully it’ll behave now it’s low maintenance.
