Hi Mozey and Welcome I would say if the chickweed is in the way move it if not maybe it won't hurt to leave it not really had that in the garden only bindweed issues

What area you from?  Is it a whole plot or half you have?

I am on the list for a plot it is all exciting listen to you lot about allotments and getting info and looking at photos, I just visit the allotment shop and be nosy that is still exciting

GWRS Beechgrove gardens meant to be on Sunday morn at 9.30 but jumps around a lot I watch later on

Zoomer shame about the bark chipping, might of been a one off though - you can test out the grass paths

Hello

you could hire a Rotavator this will clear your ground more quickly and should help level off your ground too

So many companies have them look for ones local to you, here is one company that hires out equipment

https://www.hss.com/g/62516/Power-Digger-Rotavator-.html

But remember that ones you do that it is good to cover up areas either with cardboard, weed matting or plants to stop the weeds coming back so quick

Hello Chunk and welcome

GWRS your plot looks great nice pathways, your sweetcorn got nice and tall so many on the allotments I applied for a plot don't really have them tall

Good to have projects going on

Beechgrove this week I just watched it has a bit on the allotments very worth a watch
