Horticultural Show and Allotment Regeneration

Horticultural Show, new allotment for my brother in law and how Ford Lane Allotments are being regenerated.

Green Manure to Confuse Potato Eelworm

Sowing a green manure to confuse the potato eelworm and how did I miss all those potatoes?

Creosote and White Wine

Creosote and white wine, drank one and painted the greenhouse base with the other. No prizes for guessing which!

Second Greenhouse and Carrots

A break in the rain so to the plot where gifts were waiting. I get a second greenhouse and a second comfrey barrel, plus more beans ? of course!

Weeding and Watering

Not a lot to report, just watering weeding and harvesting beans ? and a pretty poor show with the peas, but that's my fault.

Making Compost and Woodchip Paths

We had a little rain, making compost and restoring the path with wood chippings.

Beans, Squash and Courgettes

My absence explained and the harvest continues as does the dry weather.

Watering and Controlling Horsetail or Marestail

Watering and weeding again, this time controlling the horsetail before it takes over the plot.

Runner Beans, French Beans, Weeding and Thinning

Bit of rain, some beans and a lot of weeds. Also a fun little competition that someone might enter.
