Here are the jobs we did on the plot in these last few days of January:
- Areas of the vegetable plot that had weeds emerging were worked over with a hoe.
- The compost heap got a turning over to help mix up the contents as this is good practise with the type of compost heaps that I have on the allotment.
- The autumn raspberry patch had a few blackberries emerging, regrowth from the few roots we missed when we cleared the area. Hopefully that will be the last of the blackberry roots as they are a nuisance if they start to grow alongside the raspberry canes.
- Tidied up a few areas that seem to have got a bit out of hand.
I hope we get more days like this, as it gives a chance to get ahead before the busier times on the allotment arrive.
