Allotment Adventures: Rain and Woodchip

So every time I left the house last weekend, I got rained on. Fortunately for me, Ma decided that we’d start early so we did get two of the compost bins on the plot. We couldn’t assemble them because someone (who wasn’t me, lost the screws she insisted that she take for safekeeping!). Then the heavens opened.

There was wood chip, so the next morning, Ma left early and I went to the plot to do a little light weeding and some re-upping of the paths, I was doing alright and then the heavens opened.

So we are in lockdown from tomorrow and Ma hasn’t really decided if she’s comfortable travelling over on public transport, so I’m planning on being a man down and not being able to work on the plot before or after work.

So next week, I’m going to plant shallot and onion sets, and then work on weeding paths and if there’s woodchip, carrying on with the paths. I have a loose list of moving the gooseberries, ripping out the summer raspberries and, when they arrive, sowing broad beans.

Honestly, I think that’s a pretty good November list. If it ever stops raining, I’ll paint the shed!
