A Bit of a Plot Tour

We made the most of some decent weather on Thursday to get some jobs done on the allotment. Sue planted out our first batch of sweet peas.
I'm hoping that our rustic supports constructed from our coppiced hazel poles are up to the job and don't collapse in any strong winds we have through the summer months.

I managed to remove the weed control fabric from last year's runner bean bed and dug over the ground with our little cultivator.
It went from looking a lot neglected as can be seen in the above photo to something much more well tended.
The recent rainfall didn't seem to have had a great deal of effect and the ground was very dry and difficult to cultivate. It's a reminder that if we don't get any more rain crops will soon need watering again.

To finish off with here's a little tour of part of our plot filmed on Thursday afternoon.
