Cleared some brassicas, didn't know what they were! And they been nibbled, dug over bed and sewed green manure. Pulled up beetroot and have cooked. Did a bit of maintenance on path. Am determined to be more organised next year, and not to resort to putting things all over plot. Not a good plan
Oh yes, placed my potato order for next year! Not doing so many next year, Rocket and Picasso !

Added some hoss muck to a small bed, tickled it into surface and planted the last 50 Japanese onion sets i will be planting this year. Three lots of various onions now planted.
Picked a few tomatoes and a bag of calabrese spears. Calabrese has done really well for me this year and i've been eating it for at least six weeks with still more to come.
I was a bit annoyed that rats had nibbled my seed potatoes in the shed that i had kept for next year. I've now taken the rest out of the shed and they are in the car until I decide where to put them.
I was supposedly drying off french beans in their seed pods but they have decided to utilise the moisture in the pods and start germinating!My Majesty made for him a garden anew in order

Had an enormous clear up. Cleaned out the stayput so there are now only 3 big chilli plants and some aubretia and aquilegia seeds sown today. Remind me to get some sweet pea seeds to start off in there. Planted 3 more kinds of onion sets and cleared the pumpkin bed. I've also tackled the borage that had completely taken over one part of the garden! Tired now.Granny on the Game

Barrowed enough horse poo from the main gate to my allotment to fill a Dalek. Back aches now, but chuffed to beat the greedy bu@@er who normally takes all of it to it this time.

Lugged the pumpkin down near to the house, phew. Cleared the vines of the pumpkin and the weary courgettes. Still a couple going ok though so I left them to it.
Cleared the stems of the 1st lot of container french beans to make way for other things
Tidied away more outdoor toms and collected the last of the greens and put them under glass to ripen.
Harvested the pathetic sweetcorn and cleared the stems for composting.
Moved some more Pak Choi into containers and relocated them
Moved some Turnips into containers and relocated them
Checked the Turnips in the ground were not decimated - they are swelling nicely.
Moved some Broccoli Raab into container and some in the ground

Turned my attention to the school's cutting border, which is becoming overrun with bentgrass (like couch, but thinner)
I'm forking out the bentgrass carefully so as not to disturb the flowers that are growing, and feeding it to the guinea pigs, or bagging it up like leafmould (it'll keep on growing if it goes on the compost heap).
As I clear a patch, I immediately plant something, or mulch the bare soil with chopped up greenery
