Jack came to the allotment with me on Wed, it was sunny but cool. I told Jack there was pirates treasure buried in one of the raised beds and it kept him occupied for ages digging!
One side of the overgrown plot had been dug over by a mini digger and sods were piled up roughly around the edges.
I spent the time digging a trench around the edges and sinking some tiles I had found languishing in my shed at home, hopefully it will deter some of the skutch grass roots from finding their way onto the plot, fingers crossed anyway!
We bought some plants to fill up a pot which we found buried under the grass, they are to attract and feed the bees who live.....
here at the end of the line of plots! The Beekeeper paid for the plot just to keep one hive on it, I hope it will be a case of live and let live for the summer months. The bees seem to be dormant at the moment with just the odd one buzzing around.
The weather has changed drastically today with strong winds and lashing rain so work planned for the weekend will have to be put on hold.
