As the weather was dry today, I decided to visit Plot 144 and get Digging & Weeding, however, as all allotmenteers know, if you say you are going to the allotment for an hour, you really need 2 so that you can get all the chatting in too, especially when the weather is favourable and more plot holders are on site!
So when I arrive I find a "Dalek" type composting bin by my wooden compost bins. I was mine, once, but I gave it to a fellow plot holder as he was just starting out. He happened to be there and told me that he didn't have a need for it any more, so I decided to put it to good use by putting anything new from kitchen scraps to weeds in there from now on, which meant that my current 2 composting bins - the wooden ones - could have a rest and the bits that are already in them will have a good chance to get on an make me some compost!
I then had to take all the kitchen scraps that I had put into the wooden composters and move them to their new home
I then got to weeding the Garlic in the 1st raised bed.....
And the onions next to that.....
And then I dug the patch next to that and weeded it at the same time
So a good 2 hours spent there today and a good third of my plot weeded and dug over!
