Woke up this morning to the news that there is to be an inspection at the allotment next week… And there have been complaints about weeds. So, after work today I rushed up to there with my grass cutters and lots of bags to sort the meadow out!
I wouldn’t say I quite managed that but with the help of my daughter we did clear a lot of the overgrowth. I think having one of neighbours madly hacking away at the same kept my daughter engaged – whatever, it was a good evening 🙂
And the prize is that I noticed a row of lettuce coming through. I’m so glad I removed the weeds from that spot and started again. Should any stray parsnip seeds decide to germinate after all, that will be the icing on the cake, but I am happy.
