Re: My allotment

Back after a month long holiday

Spent the first two day weeding.

To day just back from picking red currents and goose berries.

This year also had a great crop of unions, no white rot and big bulbs so it seems Jayes Fluid does work as the last two years most of the sets died

You'll soon catch up again after your holiday Galty.
It is so satisfying picking your won stuff isn't it.

How are your wildflowers for the bees going on?

Could you just pull up any thistles/nettles and .... what's the name I'm looking for, the creeping thing that twines round plants and strangles them?

Or maybe even compromise and make the area a little smaller and more manageable maybe?

That last weed is a devil! I'm forever pulling off yards of the stuff from my fruit bush and rose bush.

I may pick my jostaberries if goosegogs are now ready. They looked black and plump the few ones I looked at today, but had the dog with me but no receptacle.
