Herb garden update

9 May

I don’t really have time to do a post justice, my youngest is yapping at my heels and I have promised him a trip to the local stay and play but anyway I felt compelled to do a small blog boast. Today when I went to the allotment I thought you know what I have had it with going through the weeds with a small fork and doing a square foot in three hours. Today, I thought, I am going to move things along a bit.

Herb garden about a month ago.

Part of the reason I have been using a hand fork to sort out herb garden is because the earth is so dry I cannot penetrate the caked earth with the big fork. So I soaked the whole patch with a watering can and was soon able to turn it over, in two hours I got so much done. It just needs leveling off before being covered in membrane and then sorting out containers to grow herbs in – a short cut to weed free patches on the plot, we have decided, is the only way to go.

What it looks like now!

      Yes it felt really good after my sweaty handed antics on Monday when it felt like I had hardly even touched the sides!
