Annual Weeds

Although the pea and broad bean rows look terrible, on closer inspection I wasn't all that bothered. Most of them are annual weeds which are a lot easier to deal with than dock leaves, bindweed, horsetail which take a lot of repetitive digging and patience.


However, half an hours weeding and a bit of hoeing saw it looking like this.

Already the nights are drawing in, I couldn't understand why I was unable to see to the bottom end of the plot - it had got so dark by 9.15 that I couldn't see 50 feet away ! So it was time to pack up and come home albeit unwillingly.

Nice weeding, I wish I could get my rows of leeks to look this good. They were choked recently and even after lots of weeding they looked rather raggity

Hi,I wandered into your blog and enjoyed your posts. I have an allotment in Ireland just as wet and windy if not more so then Wales! I laughed as we had the same problem with brassicas, the labels got lost so we did not know what we were actually growing untl they produced something. We ahve our plot since last year and are definitely only learning.

I know, it's so annoying about the dark evenings - if I'd known how quickly it was going to turn into autumn I swear I'd have slept up on the plot in July just to make the most of it!
