Watering the toms in the extension to the little shed on the allotment, the butternut squash and the cucumbers that have finally started to climb the netting.
I was harvesting more parsnip seed off my parsnip trees, when Barry arrived an promptly complained about the comfrey growing on the boundary between our plots so even though I had already topped up the pipe I harvested more and topped the pipe up and them spread the remainder as a mulch around the runner beans.
I trimmed back the grapes and filled a tug full of cuttings to take to Spencer Road Plot 23B. My brother-in-law was on his plot and made a cup of coffee which was a good start. Dalek one was watered, paper shredding's were added and then the vine cuttings, a sprinkle of coffee grounds and a layer of comfrey followed by another layer of shredded paper.
Two trays of spring onions and two of celery were planted in bed 4 and some were left for Joe. I gave the plants a good soaking, as well as bed 2 the cucumbers, spring onions and tomatoes and bed 1 the butternut squash that is watered via the two pop bottle stacks.
After watering a dressing of coffee grounds as a slug and snail barrier were added to the bed and this will be worked into the soil on a future visit to also act as fertiliser.
Pots filled with compost have been placed under the strawberry runners, and from the look of it I'm going to need some more pots next visit to get the rest so I have some new strawberries for next year.
