Pooh KEF - I can smell you from here

Wonky is being a star - digging over the veg patch where the PSB was, and tackling the raspberry runners. 

It's scorching here - I've come indoors and am waiting for the kettle to boil

Sage leaves

Sage will be much happier outside - harden it off and plant it outside

Wonky is here - we're drinking coffee and going out to play in the garden

ID these two plants please

Re oxalis - If you like it then it's a flower - if you don't then it's a weed - they do spread a bit.

ID these two plants please

I agree, the top one is a geum - it looks like the native one - Water Avens - I have them growing around my wildlife pond.

The bottom one is oxalis

A quick question for Allotmenteers?

Posted: 10/05/2015 at 10:22

It must be difficult when a plot holder develops ill-health - maybe the committee etc turn a blind eye to things getting overgrown in the hope that the person will make a good recovery and return to keeping their old allotment as it used to be - but it must be hard to decide when to say, 'I'm sorry, but it doesn't look like you're going to recover so now you must give up the allotment' - a bit like the kiss of death for some people.

That's the way I used to plant leeks
