It’s been a while since I spent three consecutive mornings working on the plot.
On Thursday I cut the comfrey which I then chopped up and added to the compost heap. It’ll soon grow back but meantime I can now get to one side of the raspberries easily and pick any that I’ve missed.
The wild patch is dominated by the now flowering rosebay willowherb, which grows up through and around the log pile, and lesser knapweed (centaurea nigra). I was well pleased to see a male common blue damselfly on Friday as that’s a first for me on the plot.
Wandering round looking at everything I was pleased to see this rose coloured love-in-a-mist (nigella damescena) which appears to be a one-off as all the rest have been blue and white.
At long last it looks like the weather is changing for the better with dry, sunny and warm weather for at least the next few days which I shall certainly be making the most of as there’s still plenty of plotting to do.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
