    I'm heading up to the allotment tomorrow, and I'm taking packup and plenty of hot drinks. Can't wait

    There will be more carpet to pull up... and.. some more carpet lol Running a little low on manure too now, but found that there's plenty of leaves to get hold of, along with well rotted wood chip, so might use that along with all the carboard that I've dragged up there to cover some new beds once the carpet has been banished.

    Hoping rain will hold off long enough to get me to the allotment for some weeding, finishing off a raised bed, popping a couple of steps in between the terraced beds, and sprout harvesting.

    If it rains, I will head to the gh and sow some salads, leeks, onions etc.

    Edit: did some weeding and harvested the sprouts, and had a good chat to some fellow plot holders.
    Found seeds and realised it had gone dark by the time I had found the ones I wanted to sow, so they are all now sorted by sowing month/half month
