The good the bad & the ugly
Got some wood yesterday from the local Timber merchants so that I could put it around another bed that I had 'dug' - I have to say that all that lovely rain makes digging much easier. I have done beds nearly half way along the allotment now and although I have not dug every bed properly it is starting to look much less daunting. The courgette plants have got teeny courgettes on them, the mange tout have got baby mange touts on them and I even spotted two tiny tomatoes on the tomato plants that I bought from the market. that is the good news - all my brassica seedlings that I planted out are covered with aphids in a variety of colours and now they look not very well -- sprayed with some soft soap to see if that will help but I might need to re plant & cover with fleece. I did spot some ladybirds but I think they were full up! - On a brighter note I picked some gooseberries and we had gooseberry crumble this evening and it was scrumptious!
