And all the green things grew

It’s been a while since I updated on our allotment progress. It’s been both wet and warm lately, which seems to have rather favoured the potatoes.

We’ve been eating fresh strawberries when we visit to water, strim and weed. All-in-all it is starting to look like a real allotment.

We also had an exciting delivery of mulch/ bark chippings to make paths and keep down the bindweed for our raised bed section.

A tonne of chippings takes a fair bit of moving though. Three hours of shoveling and wheelbarrowing in fact!
