I’ve now cleared…

all the old,unwanted timber from the ground by the compost heap and stood the bamboo canes behind the shed.  I’d no sooner done the latter when I turned round to see a robin perched on top on them.

I can now concentrate on the area in front of the shed most of which will be for more flowers.  I’ll do a post on that in a few weeks once it’s been cleared and dug over.

Yesterday I pulled up the now finished climbing beans and added them to the compost heap.  I also put a thick layer of compost over the rhubarb crowns as a winter duvet.

Next week it looks like being mostly dull, but thankfully remaining dry, so I’ll be plotting most mornings.

Have a good week!

    A huge difference in your allotment utility area. You must be very satisfied with the results of your labours. Enjoy next week, before the clocks change. xxx

    That robin will be waiting for you to get your spade out. It’s lovely when the birds keep you company, there’s a little blue tit which perches on my windowsill and taps on the window with his beak, it’s like he’s asking me to let him in.

    It looks beautifully neat now. You have reminded me that I miss my allotment and its little shed area and compost heaps. That was my favourite spot. It will be lovely to see the front of your shed and the flowers come next summer. Fingers crossed for a dry week for you. CJ xx

      CJ thanks, there are untidy areas as well. It’s the most important plot area, so I can understand what you say. I sure hope so. It’s wet this morning but hopefully the rest of the week will be dry. xx

    How nice and neat your readjusted shed and compost container look. When I read bamboo and then robin, I smiled, because I remember your picture of a robin atop them a year or so ago. The robin has been (as I describe my dogs) “supervisory personnel” and was giving you its endorsement!

  5. Has your rhubarb died back already? I was amazed to be able to pull two stalks from mine last week for a compote. It is a rather endearing trait that robins find a way to alight on the last thing touched as soon as your back is turned to work in the garden at this time of year!

      Allison it nearly had, just a few leaves were still green. I’m not surprised as rhubarb on other plots is still looking good. It certainly is, and I’m always happy to see them do that. xx

    all very organised.

  7. It all looks enviably tidy! Xx

    Goodness, how tidy everything looks! Your robin approves, too.

    It certainly looks very smart now! I bet you’re glad that’s all sorted.xxx
