    • Potted up some sprouted dwarf french bean seeds.
      Planted out the last of the leek plants at the allotment.

      • A bit of weeding this weekend, and sowed Florence fennel, plus more carrots and radishes.
        Also did some panic spraying of maincrop potatoes and tomatoes - looks like blight has arrived on a couple of allotments on our site
        Location: London

        • Finally planted out the last of my Annuals, Bells of Ireland, some Salvias and Cerinthe Major. My lovely neighbour gave me a big Penstemon and a Gaura so planted those too. Started to prune one of my Pyracantha and some Spring flowering shrubs. Sowed some more carrots and radishes. Planted out the last two Cobra beans.
          Today was a good day.

          • Sowed a bunch of seeds.

            Took some lavender and wisteria cuttings and stuck them in a deep pot, roughly covered with some bubble wrap, placed in a cold frame. Fingers crossed.

            • Pruned my cherry tree.
              Coppiced the willows at the allotment (need to dig them out this winter).

              Loosened the roots of all of my onions. They are starting to die back now, but I want the space for purple sprouting, so I've decided to hasten the process a little. I also brought back eight suspect looking bulbs (don't think it's white rot - half seem to be some sort of blue-green mould, and the others some sort of brown rot), and two that had grown a load of weird bulblets at their base, for some reason.

              • Last few weekends rather than today, but
                - picked courgettes
                - serviced the plot's lawnmowers (well, the easy ones)
                - mowed my plot (at long long last)
                - picked courgettes
                - took the small person to pick blackberries
                - picked carrots (Nantes Early)
                - planted some cheeky infill carrots in the gap
                - did I mention picking courgettes...?

                I think tinkering away at a few lawnmowers in the peace and quiet of the shed may be my new favourite thing...

                • Last couple of days I’ve been pulling up bolted lettuce and weeding. That latest rains really made the weeds grow.
