Evening all,

Here is a pic for you Beaus Mum - rhubarb area all done now had to clear some acanthus from behind area and put a few stakes in on trellis behind.

Rhubarb one really leafy plant the other to the left little small crown and I planted a few violas that self seeded themselves around the garden that is the dazzling yellow paint

 So like my rudbeckia that I sowed from seed this year

After the rhubarb area - I planted out three dog wood plants that had been waiting to go in for ages, filled my nursery bed up with 2 more bags of compost, removed plants from my large tub dug it over  - behind in bottom pic and shifted compost from one bin to the other

sat in sun for a bit

Then later did a bit of painting on my pallet project

so that is some bits of my list done

New allotment OMG...

GWRS you could grow the radishes into tubs that should be fine, have you thought about making a cover for the ones you grow in the ground it could be bugs attacking it from above   

think you can get yellow, white, purple beetroot multi coloured, me still don't do well with growing beetroot they don't grow well 1- 2 cm big not sure why,  this year grew them too late

not sure what else yet I will see when that is done
