I haven’t posted about the allotment before and thought that it was about time that I did. Reiss and I have a little bit of land thanks to his mum 🙂 We currently have 5 beds, a poly tunnel, a courgette patch, a bath full of strawberries, one full of herbs, some fruit trees/bushes and 4 chickens.
Last weekend we decided that we would start to document our progress and failures through photography and film.
Some weeding was desperately needed! This is a long and backbreaking job but extremely rewarding!
If anyone can identify this extremely annoying weed and a way to keep it at bay, please help! Why does it only grow in the beds and not in the grass? I have been told it is bindweed but am not entirely sure?
Whilst we were weeding we pulled some of the smaller onions as they were fallen over and apparently ‘ready’. However, as you can see they are still not much bigger than the bulbs… Again any thoughts as to why this could be? They have been overwintered.
These garlics were overwintered also, as you can see nothing has developed. The evidence above ground was healthy and strong. I am very confused!
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
