We're getting there

I didn't manage to make it to the allotment to do any work last week until the weekend. Our new bedroom furniture was being built and so someone needed to be at home whilst that was being done. Martyn managed to get an afternoon in to do some strimming and we also paid an evening visit to check on things and do a bit of filming.

After the fiasco when we updated the bathroom we were a little apprehensive about the work on the bedroom but everything went smoothly. The company was really efficient and the installer made a really good job. Everything went exactly to plan - phew!

During our first full afternoon on the plot at the weekend, we mainly concentrated on some weeding.

Things are moving on

Last week we managed to clear most of the beds and, Martyn went over them with the rotavator. The only bed that hasn't been dug over is the old strawberry bed, where the soil is hard and cracked. It will need a good amount of rain to soften the soil before it can be dug

I planted the last of our seed potatoes. Most of the ones that had been planted previously, are through now and the ones planted in tubs at home are growing strongly.

The work goes on

There are still beds to clear and dig over on the allotment.  We had a little rain last week but not enough to put watering on hold. The ground was very dry when the beds below were dug over as I hope the photos show.
