The work continues on the Allotment
Last Thursday gave us a morning with no rain with a blink of sunshine. Oyster catchers and curlews feeding on the playing fields cheered us as we carried on with the maintenance. The repair of the raised beds continued along with the weeding – this time round the honeyberries and the north edge. There was hard work on the community bed with the removal of fruit bushes and clearing of an overgrown patch.
Finally the new fruiting shoots on the loganberry were tied in. A picking of chard, beetroot and leeks with potatoes, apples and the last of the onions rounded off the day.
Jobs for next week
