Getting Down & Dirty
it wasn't all fun and games, the potatoes were earthed up as frost is still a threat, windbreaker was secured along the remaining side so the plot is now enclosed .Billy weeded the onions and dug a trench outside the fence where the marauding mint is invading our plot.
Mint grows from lateral shoots so our thinking is to stop anymore of it spreading in and try to weed out the ones that have made it through. We are going to pot up a few shoots too of course.
I put in some flowers , just marigolds and Snapdragons for the moment to attract some bees to help with pollination.They are around the pea bed, the one with yogurt cartons swinging on the peas stick branches.
The Sweetcorn is at home under fleece to try and protect them from the wind and cold for the next couple of weeks.
This is record posting on this very neglected Blog but, I will be missing again as I am going to London with my sister to the Centenary Chelsea Flower Show for the weekend , lots of photos will be taken if the weather is kind to us.It is my first visit and I am really looking forward to it!
