Bank Holiday Monday Weeding!

Weather forecast was for rain today, so only expected to go to the Allotment for a few hours. But what a lot we got done. 
Here is the late Onion bed, there were Shallots in there too, but most unexpectedly didn't survive, so will put some excess Onions in there in their place, now it's been weeded. 
The last bit that hasn't been touched since last summer, except for putting the pond in, was the end of last years Potato patch, we put Cox's Orange Pippins Apple trees in last winter & a Gooseberry Bush too, but there is room to put some Sweetcorn in between the trees & the Manure heap & Pond. Better for being Weeded.  
This old broken Compost bin, still had compost in it from 2009/2010, it was full of Ground Elder, Nettles & the odd Potato too, but now fully dug out & weeded we can put weed suppressant fabric over the compost & plant Pumpkins in it.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian

  1. Glad to hear you got some work done on Bank Holiday Monday. I like the look of your pond, a good idea. I managed some work down the plot, over the Bank holiday, but nothing else until today due to rain!!
