After all these holidays those of us with allotments should be way ahead this year - gulp.
At the moment I'm dreaming of thistle roots, having just turfed all my baby peas out of their spiky nursery in order to dig it over for the THIRD time this year...at this rate I'll have perfect soil by September, with not a crop to show. Move over thistles and bindweed, the potatoes are coming. My new tactic is to plant more potatoes than we will eat in our lifetimes in the spiky end of the allotment and then ignore it....
The lovely end of the allotment is doing well (if you don't count zero precipitation thus stopping all germination) and there are an exciting number of berries on their way this year - hurrah.
