My sandy soil is now saturated by days of rain, which you might think is good news after the lack of rain.
However when the soil on the plot becomes this wet, I need to avoid trampling around on it.
Compacting the soil does it no favors, after all, part of the benefit of adding compost and manure to it is to improve the structure of the soil.
So it is walking on the paths only if it dries up enough to fit in a visit to the allotment this week.
I do not put ads on my blog but do have a counter that shows me how many visits the pages get. (The stats. count is just there so I can see if I am 'talking' to myself, luckily so far this has not happened.) By continuing your visit here you are consenting to the stats. counter tracking cookies. Cookies, that sounds like something nice to eat but not that exciting.
Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
