I finally made it back up the allotment today and as predicted, lots of work was waiting for me. Fitting in time where I could round Girl Lacer’s social life, I managed to do some weeding and a tiny bit of planting. This time there seemed to be a lot of something that looked like it could be a brassica of some sort, I still swear that most my weeds are actually self seeded veg plants that have gone wild over the four years the plot was neglected. There’s also a flower thing that seems pretty much all over the allotment site and is actually quite pretty, but still, trying to be strict, got rid of it.
I planted a couple of herbs (thyme and apple mint) I had bought at the allotment plant sale last weekend (I had also bought basil, but that’s staying on my window sill a little longer). The whole herb bed is looking quite good (after I weeded it and compared to the rest of the allotment).
I then cleared the salad bed, again. One of these days, maybe, I may actually be picking salad from that bed and not weeds, but somehow I have a feeling it’s not going to be this salad (also bought at the plant sale), the soil is just so dry it’s not soil, it’s weed root filled grit.
More weeding tomorrow.
