    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

    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.
