Well it has been a rush over the last couple of weeks and work and life has been hectic so altough I have managed to spend a few hours at the allotment I haven't had time to do any reading or writing.
Today I am rectifying all that and have just caught up woith all my favourite blogs and now I write a very quick post with a few pictures and hopefully tomorrow there woill be a lot more to see.
So the weather hasn't changed much over the last couple of weeks. Last weekend was dry for the most part and I did get a bit of time down the allotment to do some much needed weeding and tidying but then also had to get some time in the garden too.
Today has been warm and sunny and it is giving this for a few days now so I am really hoping to get things under control.
I have spent so much time weeding and tidying I still haven't pricked out the lettuce to there final growing place. Just another thing added to the list.
I spent a long time weeding and hoeing this piece of land. I filled a wheelie bin with weeds and still only found three carrots so have sown some more of them ans also some more turnips. Even my beetroot look sorry for themselves this year and so I have transplanted a few more to the plot...Hopefully they will grow.
The surprise squash plants have started to produce some flowers and the sweetcorn seems to be holding it's own if not growing very much.
I will be starting on this side over this weekend...I know it doesn't look too bad in this photo but I have to admit to being a bit picky on which bit I photographed!!
Any idea what is wrong with this?? I had 5 tubers of this variety and this is the only one left above ground. All the other potatoes are doing fin yet these seem to have succumbed to something...just not sure what. I will try digging them up to see if there is anything under the ground.
Everyone is battling with weeds and probably losing the fight..I am trying to tame the weeds and tidy up as I go along and below is what I managed to get done last weekend. I have done a little more since then but this is just a little taster for now.
