Emma & Andy arrived early this morning. Andy & I arrived at the allotment gates around 9:15. The sun tried to come out whilst we were down there during the morning and just about managed it as we left at 1pm to head home for Sunday lunch.
Below are photos and an explanation of what we managed to get done.
Runner Bean Frame after Andy replaced all the vertical bamboos with longer 5ft canes, diagonal bracing added to the frame. The lone Dalek is likely to be moved out and into Dalek Army One and I'm thinking perhaps a cold frame-ish structure or perhaps a seedless grape vine location taking the vine to the right towards the greenhouse on plot 1A
View down the plot looking at the Runner Bean Frame and into the Butt area that has the Comfrey Butt the Nettle Butt and a Water Butt for when there is a hosepipe ban. The square flower buckets with the glass panel over contains sand that needs to go into the sand butt for growing Bugs Bunny Carrots and the bed 2 needs to be cleared of the pallet and debris on a future visit.
Butt area still needs to cleaning up and a tidy. I need another couple of solar powered pumps to oxygenate the comfrey and nettle on draft plant feed and keep it fresh.
The dustbins that I have been acquiring off Freecycle that were on the path beside the greenhouse on plot 1 have been moved to a temporary location between narrow bed H1 and Bed 12 whilst the Storage area behind the line of various Butts is being cleaned out and finally paving slabs laid.
Rubbish Bins in temporary location on path between the onion bed 12 and Narrow bed H1 that tomatoes were grown in last year. Nice to see the Over Wintering Onions doing well in Bed 12
