Sunday On The Allotment - 4 Nov - Tidying Up
Today's plan was to do a bit of general tidying up, sort out and clear one of the beds where I harvested pumpkins last week and check progress on the Autumn sowings.
Both now sorted - for now. So time to enjoy some time out on the allotment ......
Leeks looking ok and - best of all - peas coming on really well under their fleece cloches.
I chucked in a few more slug pellets as a precaution.
I hoed and cleared the weeds and raked over the bed to level it. I've run out of mustard green manure seeds - so decided on a different approach to protecting the bed for Winter.
Heavily weighted down against the persistent west winds that sweep across our site. If it escapes it should end up somewhere in The Scillies - so let me know an I'll send return postage.
A sure sign of hope for the Spring to come.
More news from the allotment soon. Please comment - feedback welcome.
