Keeping the plot in Trim
Today, 3 onion beds weeded,fed and watered with the paths in between clipped with a hand clippers. We were going to dig out the paths and cover with 'something' but regular clipping will keep them tidy.There are 2 white onion beds and one red, they seem to be in varying stages of growth even in the same bed as can be seen in the top bed in the photo!
The courgettes are really taking off, even though none have reached an edible stage yet there are lots of blossom.
Despite quite heavy showers over the last few days the ground is very dry and had to be watered , plants are growing but slowly.
The potatoes even though they were sprayed twice with Bordeaux mix have signs of blight on them today, I pulled off all affected leaves and will go up to the plot tomorrow morning to check, if there are more spotted leaves then it definitely is blight. The warm humid weather conditions for the past few days have been ideal for blight .
