and evening there was heavy rain for several hours so it wasn’t surprising to see much of the allotment site water-logged on Monday morning. Thankfully the plot was okay, but soggy in a few places. Since then there’s been more rain, but nowhere near as heavy. Despite all that I spent Tuesday morning and today hoeing and weeding the three vegetable patches, mostly from the grass paths which as you see need rough cutting again once they’re dried out.
This is the view looking north towards the roadway taken this morning. The cornus, dog rose and rose Pretty Lady are now all in full leaf, and it won’t be long before the latter starts flowering.
The next few days look like being wet and very windy at times, gusting to over 40 mph, so it looks like any further plotting will have to wait until next week.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
