My poor allotment is in a sorry state, any of the preparation work that was done earlier has gone to waste. The back of the plot where I planned to pit the potatoes and the cabbages etc is way too we to dig and the weeds are going mad. Looking around me I am not the only plot in this mess in fact there is worse. So the plan is just to get on with it and do the best I can.. I have a couple of slot together raised beds I bought in Aldi so I am thinking of putting them together and using them as giant containers for the potatoes.

|Grit : My slug control.|
|Asparagus : This is it's second year.|

I have finally got all the pots moved back. I gathered them up in October so if it weather got bad they could all be covered with fleece. My Son is finished collage for the Summer and is studying for exams (last one Friday) So between breaks he did the donkey work.
|Back at last. Sweet pea in pots this year.|
|The big blue pot at the back will be home to tomatoes later.|
|New Herb patch.|
|the bright patch is the palegreen and white Euphorbia that had out grown it's spot.|
|Grass got cut.|
|Home to lots more|
|Surprise pot. Can't remember what is in there.|
I also managed to get more seeds sown. I am trying borlotti beans for the last time. I have failed the last 2 years. That is my gardening policy I will give any plant 3 years if I'm not happy it goes.
