Weekending 09-03-08

Grass cutWell I have finally got back to the allotment ( The shower room at home is finished and a local chap did a fantastic job on it).

The first job was to cut the grass around the vegetable plots and also the fruit area, as this always helps to make the allotment look neat and tidy. I then picked some leeks, cabbage and broccoli.

The next time I went I did some more digging on bed two ( still more to do). On Sunday I trimmed the grass around my gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes and then gave them a good prune. I then gave the allotment a general tidy and called it a day and went home for lunch

The garlic that was sown in the allotment two weeks ago is now showing its shoots.

The rhubarb I covered a couple of weeks ago is shooting nicely and will be ready for picking soon.
