I used a draw hoe that cuts the weeds & does the earthing up too.
Been extending this patch where I will plant the Cara potatoes soon.
It had a lot of surface weeds, Ground Elder, Nettles and Sweetcorn roots, from last summers crops, to dig out. Hard work but worth it.
The grass on the path was getting a bit long at the sides, so I got my trusty petrol strimmer out to give the grass a trim, the first cut this year.
Looks a lot better for it.
The Shallots we put in a few weeks ago are putting on more growth.
So we put a row of Radish seed in between the Shallots & the Garlic.
Using a push/pull hoe, I managed to weed in between the Onions that we put in last autumn, for over wintering.
I pulled out some of the more persistent weeds!
Such a lovely sunny day, we spent a good 4½ hours today, so satisfying too
Hard to believe that Monday/Tuesday will be cold & wet!
Thanks for reading/returning. Jo & Ian
