Hello looking good already , as Pannyface said if you spray the paths you are left with mud ! We get bark chipping delivered free to our site so I use those for paths 

When got our allotment o/h didn't want to use weed killer but we have occasionally , you could spray one section at a time if it starts getting to much , also could edge beds 

With wood or other material 

Keep us posted

Gardengirl brocolli looks good and lots of purchase always exciting 

Been up to day but repairing fence due to wind damage , bit behind with digging at moment but will catch up eventually 

Couple of pallets left in car park for couple of weeks now , so as the rule is anything in car park is any bodies so had them 

Did good deed though put bark chipping on road way into plot , chap got stuck earlier , 2 of us had to give him a push with some carpet under wheels , he has a disabled daughter in wheel chair in back of van , so vechle a bit heavy  

Happy gardening all

Rats , I live in a semi rural location and there is only 3 ways to get rid of rats , unless of course you have Buzzards but no guarantee they will take yours , that is shoot them  , get a powerful air rifle , trap but have known them chew there way out or poison , get somebody in to do it rather DIY 

Best of luck
