Unkempt - We Have Those Bits Too!

Sunday was another brilliant day. We visited the plot and did a little bit but spent much of the time sitting in the shade and putting the world to rights with our plot neighbours.

We certainly have areas of our plot in desperate need of attention and as you might guess we tend to avoid posting photographs of these areas.  
This is one of those beds. It’s our over-wintering brassica bed from last year. Some old roots have been removed but the bed is now ready for a good clear out. It doesn't matter which way you look at this bed it’s definitely untidy.
But lurking in amongst the weeds and old broccoli plants I found a Mayfair cauliflower and a Durham Early cabbage so I felt much better for not having already cleared this bed.

I guess I'm out of excuses now for not sorting out this patch, but it is rather hot at the moment and a drop of rain would soften the soil up to make getting weeds out easier. Maybe the end of the week might be a good time.


  1. There'a a reason for not pulling things up too soon. We've been dividing our time between the allotment and the garden, it seems everything is needing our attention at the moment.

  2. It's a home gardening day for me today. Need to make sure everything is ready for our summerhouse arrival tomorrow.
