Dismantled a raised bed from my Garden and moved it to the Allotment. Now have room in garden for my new Greenhouse
Raised bed is a big one being made from 2.4m scaffold boards stacked 2 high and a width of 1.2m.
All I have to do now is move all the soil to the Allotment
been ill with pleurisy this last couple of weeks so have had to leave the gardening to oh! still, he hasn't killed anything off yet. managed a trip to the greenhouse yesterday and toms, cucs, squash and melons all coming along nicely although tom plants seem a little small compared to this time last year.
the garden is looking good with all my flowers coming up really strong, i though i might have planted them out too early but they seem ok.
tonight i am going to plant up my hanging
Ok...So it's my last day away from home after having been to Philadelphia and New York with work. I can't wait to get home so that I check up on my veg. I really hope that the other half has been looking after things while I've been away. Oh well, I'll know tomorrow....
What look a promising day was ruined by a heavy downpour around 11am.
Finally got clear skys and sunshine around 1pm and made my way to the plot.
The roundup seems to have had some success.
Dug and rotavated a good size patch today. Big enough to move one of my large raised bed frames from the garden (2.4m x 1.2m)
Hopefully will be able to move it to the plot on Wednesday.
After a morning of light rain finally made it to the plot after lunch.
Attacked with strimmer and then sprayed with roundup.
Surprised that most of my neighbours suggested roundup, thought everyone had gone all Eco.
