I also took some snaps of yet more shopping I did on Friday evening - more seeds for this year:
& kohl rabi: purple vienna (which I have never eaten,
in any form, so this will be a proper first!)
Sunflowers: sunburst mixed, marrow: long green bush2
(LOVE marrows!), leek: lyon2 prizetaker (sounds promising!),
& some mixed annuals - planning to plant these in strips
at each end of the veg beds.
The other job we did was to move 3 compost bins out from behind the shed and under the trees, into the open. I am hoping being in full sun will create some heat to break things down faster. It also means they are easier to get to. We put lots of the rotted compost onto the beds and Nick dug it in. I was on barrow duty. I also put the unrotted compost back into the bins. To be honest, a lot of what was in the bins was trash, literally! Jam jar lids, sweet wrappers, crisp packets, carrier bags. Doesn't make any sense to me. Hardly going to rot down eh. There were also lots of sticks, stones and bits of metal I also picked out. At least I know what's in the bins from now on will be useful for the allotment!
Well, might pop down the allotment tomorrow, might not. We shall see! I do need to mow though. Claire's mower wouldn't get going today so I think it needs some 'go-juice'! Hope you're making the most of the finer weather this weekend. :)
