Allotment Adventures: Chapter 1 (Weeds @ War)


Good evening GoYers,

Firstly thanks to all who responded to my question about the carpet weed control, I have now scrapped that idea and my new weed control is:

……To pull them out :( lol then cover.

I have now cleared a lifetime worth of weeds and cleared so much rubbish that i now have a some what large soil area ready to be dug and manured.

Heres a reminder of plot 332 when i started on 2nd August, only 4 weeks ago….

Here is the same area today ……

Thats all now for the allotment and to finish a few pics of the garden :) Have a good weekend

Well done on clearing so many weeds ... I know exactly how much hard work has gone into that ... been there, done that! ... Will you be planting any crops for the Autumn/Winter at all? . . . . .
