A big thank you my Daughters Emma and Kelly for a great Fathers day. They looked after their Mum this morning so that I could get to the allotment to try and get on top of the weeds and the Comfrey in the morning.
Four Rubber Tug loads cut up later and added to the Daleks and the path into the plot can once again be seen and accessed.
The Plum tree is growing into the path between plots 1A and 2A and the decision has been made to significantly reduce the tree as it was covered in small baby plums and all but 4 now remain.
The Blank weed membrane bed sheets were draped over the onion beds and allowed to dry off before finally being folded and put away in a storage container until they are required again to cover the beds for winter.
Photo taken just before I came home for lunch showing the progress made in clearing the bulk of the mares tail towards the greenhouse frames. More clearance happened when we retuned in the afternoon but I didn't get any photos, but we have filled the rotating Composter with mares tail to dry off so I can burn it when we can have fires again. The bed on the right is the Asparagus bed and it seriously needs weeding again! a job for a future visit.
The three Allotmenteers, Emma at the rear Kelly in the middle and Mr Ruggedly Handsome in the front.
The girls both cooked a great beef roast Sunday fathers day lunch with all the trimmings and make a forbidden chocolate cake for desert. We watched a family film together over lunch and then after allowing some time for our lunch to get down, they both came with me back to the allotment to harvest four deep Chinese takeaway containers of Raspberries.
