Karl – aiming to post some pics of allotment progress at some point this week. Its been a busy old time on fronts recently. And there's just not enough hours in the day, it seems.[/quote]
Looking forward to the photos Howard. I know what you mean about not enough hours. My place of work is 1 minute walk from the plot which means i'm spending more time watering and tending than actually doing anything that earns money
Runner beans are in and canes are up...cucumber seeds are in, toms are in, spring onions are in. Still only 2 / 5 ths of the plot are under cultivation. I'll post up a piccie of the stuff we are digging out
nettle, couch grass, bind weed and marestail roots all jumbled into a thick mat![/quote]
Spent most of the weekend over the lottie clearing and digging like a crazy thing. Disturbed a muntjac deer that was nestled in the forest of brambles on my plot – it sprang out and bounded over everything then over the chain link fence – quite a sight.
Spent the day in an air conditioned office in Wimbledon looking out at the lovely weather wishing I could be at the lottie or pottering in the garden with the chickens. Small mercy is that the bike's back in action now so I can introduce an element of fun en route as I commute and save a pile of cash. Just got to watch out for random golden retrievers deciding to dash out in front of me – was barrelling along downhill...
