We had rain this week, lots and lots of glorious rain, I had to use an umbrella!
The allotment also got a delivery of woodchip. So most of my Saturday morning at the plot was spent wheelbarrowing woodchip from the main gate to my plot and most of Ma’s morning was spent spreading it on the plot.
It doesn’t look much different in the pictures but it’s very noticeable in person, especially at the top of the plotOther things, Ma picked basil, I sorted the wayward tomatoes – so close now..The sweetcorn is also close and we have our first borlotti beanThe kale, leeks and chard are doing well and Ma and I, with much swearing from me, thinned and netted the chard. This year I’ve been encouraging Ma to do more of the fun stuff of sowing and planting things, instead of just weeding, and she sowed the chard so is very happy that it’s doing so wellNext week on the work list are cutting back the raspberry canes that are done, weeding the raspberries and the herb patch, and giving everything a good feed. Easy week then!
