Each day that I’ve been to the plot over the past couple of weeks I’ve dug out and sieved, using a blue plastic basket, a wheelbarrow load of compost from one of the nearby communal wood chip bays. I’ve put it on, then raked it across, two of the forked over vegetable patches.
I’ll continue to do this for the rest of the plot, as long as the weather remains good.
This was the view this morning across the top end of the plot showing the still flowering pot marigolds, cosmos and asters.
Visible in the backgound are the bright red and yellow leaves on some Stag’s horn sumach trees (rhus typhina). Top left of the picture is the magnificent willow tree by the site gates.
I’ve now eaten the last of the plot grown tomatoes, which lasted about two months, but the windowsill Tiny Tim at home has about ten fruit which it looks like I’ll be eating in November.
A year ago tomorrow I was in hospital having my gall bladder removed. This year I’ll be enjoying the day rather more as it’s my birthday, not that I’ll be celebrating it.
Have a good week!
