Look at the empty space on Plot 11 now where the greenhouse once stood. As there are paved slabs there, D said he wants to keep it as a seating area. We have decided on Plot 11, we will be growing veg and fruit that will need low maintenance.
After putting the greenhouse in it's new home. We got back over to Plot 11 and continued with our weeding and digging. You may have noticed that Ds plot is greener than mine. D likes to have a bit of grass for the wildlife and bugs - but this means cutting grass, and it is already needing it. We have a manual grass cutter, I can see that coming over in a couple of weeks time, not this weekend as I we are off down to London to see my in-laws and go the Incredible Veggie Show.
I had already weeded this plot, but D was forking it over ready for the broad beans to be transplanted - maybe tomorrow - if I have any energy.
We also placed this bit of heavy wood donated a few years ago to the allotment from one of the shipping yards. We decided to use if as a border. I rather like it, it's au naturale and rather pleasing to the eye.
Sometimes, I am bad for nabbing things. I dragged this old dirty bath over when I saw a new allotment holder dumping it in a corner. D thinks I should be realistic with what I want to do with it, otherwise I may end up becoming a hoarder of junk. He is right. I have to think about it NOW, I have till tomorrow to think about it as it will be my chance to return it back to where I dragged it from, after that it becomes my responsibility.
This is D's scrawny gooseberry plant. Mine is not looking any better, (maybe I will show you tomorrow why), but his rhubarb is looking starting to look good. The rhubarb crowns on my plot do not seem to have burst from the ground.
