I can’t believe how fast this month is whizzing by. I’ve still got to start my seeds off, I’m hoping to get this done in the evenings after work this week 🙂 (I’ve been a bit on the poorly side since the weekend and haven’t had much energy!)
I’ve been thinking about the work we’ve been doing on the lottie i.e tackling the pesky weeds… and what we still have to do….
This was the plot before we started…
There were so many weeds everywhere it was hard to know where to start, first things first not every weed is a weed! I’ve moved this little corncockle chappy over to Bug Lane!
The first bit dug and de-weeded! A quick cup of tea then back to it… I’m flagging at this point!
No need to fear! Help is here 🙂 here comes jassy and Mr.B ready to roll their sleeves up and dig in 🙂
All set up at the camp, water – check! biscuits – check! Gravy bones – check! 😀
Apart from Christmas day this is the first real day we’ve all spent grafting on the allotment 🙂 Jassy was welcoming our new friends to the plot 😀
Many hands make lighter work 🙂 Progress…
I dug up the last of the carrots 🙂 We were happily surprised at the size of some of them. This year I’m going to be sowing them thinly rather than throwing them straight in – big juicy carrots for us 😀
We’ve still got a bit of weeding to go, on the extra land we’ve been given. It looks like our neighbour Brian fought the weeds and the weeds won!… :O
After a long day grafting, we left achy, tired but happy with the work we’ve got done 🙂
After such a glorious day on the Sunday, I popped down in the fading afternoon sun to dig up some leeks. Leek & potato soup was on the menu – it was delicious 🙂
It’s so good to be back, we’ll soon be in the swing of things. It will be great to get the extra light in the evenings and pop down to the lottie for a potter.
