Sunday 9th June 2013

Early morning start, down at the allotment for 6:00 and worked at it until 12:45 then made my way home for Sunday lunch.  I ended up clearing out the shed and putting the mini cloches back in their bags - and sorting out the other bits that had been deposited, i.e. all the plastic drink bottles. There were enough to make another frame up for the grapes.

So I cleared the grapes and the runner beans of weeds, pulled out the beans that have not made it and planted new beans straight in the ground - must remember to slug pellet on the next visit.

Dug and sieved half the mound of earth that's near the shed and in the way of bed 7 and attacked the area with a pick axe to break up what is turning into mud concrete.

Assembled the Garden Table and then cleared out the storage area - spraying the bind weed as I came upon it. and got rid of a lot of the debris that was knocking around the plot. So not a lot of progress re digging but a good mornings work.

Keith, Andy, Bob John and Adi made appearances during the morning as well.

Returned in the early evening to water and Jen suggested putting up the mini greenhouse she bought me for Christmas after I told her it would take about half and hour to erect. laid all the bits out on the newly erected table in number order and it went together really easy. Then home to pot up the strawberries and water all my babies in the cold frame and mini grow house.
