Allotment Adventures: Ma does all the work

Not a huge amount to report this week. I was volunteering at the Ealing Half Marathon this Sunday, so I left Ma on the plot at 7:30 ish with coffee and malt loaf and picked her up at 12-ish.In that time she tidied up the front of our plot and weeded Dionne’s plot for 2 hours. She is amazing.

We collected pak choi, chard, kale, salad leaves, a crookneck and two patty pans. We are entering the everything is green and leafy stage of produce collection and I am kicking myself for not doing late summer sowings of peas and beans but you can’t do everything and I’m learning for next year.

The thing I need to do is work out how to stop the bastard fox doing this to the beds that I covered for next year. I’m not amused by this, between the pigeons and the foxes, I’m going to need more netting!
