We went up the allotment early this morning before the sun came out.
You can't see them all but there are about 18-20. It was quite easy, I just scooped away the shredded wood dug a hole, added lots of rotten manure popped the plant in, recovered the ground and Mr Lottie watered them all in for me.
The grass was growing fast, so I got Mr L to mow this little patch the other side of the wood chips - it needed going over several times to get it short.
And I did the rest - and that too needed cutting on three different settings until I got it short.
The pale areas will soon green up - it's where the grass was really long so didn't see the daylight and is yellow, and also where the wood chip pile was.
I even did the paths around the first fenced off area too, and we banged in some fence posts that had got a bit wobbly over the winter.
The potatoes are chitting away nicely at home, and I
must remember to get some broad beans if I don't have some in my seed stash.
And yes I ache for England again - but at least it's a rewarding ache!
