Another flying visit

It was another flying visit to the allotment last week,

It was a wet week again and Martyn's foot isn't yet improved enough for him to wear any footwear that would be suitable for working on the allotment.

We spent an hour or so at the weekend taking some waste materials to the plot to compost and also to uncover the winter onions and garlic. These had been protected under enviromesh after planting but now the enviromesh was likely to be doing more harm than good. The shoots couldn't grow straight under the weight of the mesh and also if we do have any snow the weight of the snow on the mesh would flatten the young plants Hopefully, now the mesh has been removed the plants will straighten as they usually do.
