Posted on

Oh dear forgot to post this…..

Gosh it’s hot. I’m sitting on my train home writing my post…and again on my way to work today.

The to do/done list:
-The tats have been in the car. I like to imagine them yelling out ‘road trip!’ I need to bring these into the flat….and I hope to get them in the ground this weekend!

-chillies to pot up. 1/2 for plot and 1/2 for home. I got these potted, just need to bring half home tonight!
-Courgette and cucumbers to move to greenhouse… I did this.

We went down to the allotment first thing today; and made some good progress. I also investigated what was under the piles of bin bags and carpet; as feared we found one of the many snail hide outs! My message to them; “YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED!”

The front of the plot is starting to look a bit less weed ridden! The soil is so full of stones; I have started only taking out the big flinty ones. Hopefully we can re -cycle them somehow. Lots to do; but its good to keep tracking the progress!
