It’s been two weeks since we last went to the allotment, so we were expecting a little bit of weed growth. This was something of an understatement when we arrived at the plot last weekend to find very little visible under a covering of grass and weeds. A day of hard work later and the grass has been cut down again and the soil dug and planted with the remaining potatoes. We don’t have much growing at the moment, just the potatoes and the onions. We have a few empty beds that I am saving for the beans, courgettes and squash, all of which are nearly large enough to plant out. Progress is still slow and I doubt we will get the whole plot dug for planting this season but we should see some vegetables for our efforts.
