|Split your allotment into two halves and work down one half then up the other half.|
|Trench forked over at the bottom.|
|The bad end of the allotment.|
As you can see there are plenty of weeds. The carpet will go. The Allotment Committee is going to order a skip and we are only going to put carpets, glass and car tyres in it. Why do people bring all this rubbish onto the allotment.
Will I get this done this year? I don't know at the moment. Regardless of anything else it will improve this area of the allotment site a little. The bloke who has the one next to this is a good gardener so we will benefit each other if we can keep these allotments clean.
I planted out all the Blue Danube sweet peas using inoculated charcoal and rootgrow mychorrhizal fungi.
They were watered in with rain water. There is something eating my sweet pea seedlings. It looks a bit like flea beetle damage. I will monitor the plants carefully.
Next, I took out the two blackcurrant bushes that I put into the double digging trench and replaced them with two cuttings with no big bud mite on them.
I began to make a space for the parsnips to be sown into by moving some of the broad beans onto the brassicae bed. I will eventually have two or three lines of broad beans.
