my old strawberry bed is so dense with plants  I just pull up any weeds if bigger than the strawberry plants 

the new bed the plants are planted far enough apart to hoe , at moment

Good evening all , my Niece & huby go to Scotland at least 3 times a year for Holidays , will get there one day for a proper holiday , always fancied the Highlands 

Nearly went there 1 year for a big family holiday but it was considerably cheaper to go to Turkey , not that I would go there at present 

Hostafan are you in Cape Verde island , is it the green volcanic one or the other one ? We went to the other one , Beautiful blue sky's everyday , not much to see , I think it is sad   how some people use there phones 

pleased to say nice and sunny , been out with chain saw cutting wood today 

hope you are all well

Hello , you can definately strim wet grass 

As for burning , get a pallett and put the stuff on that to dry ie. it's off the ground 

If you can afford it buy a fire dustbin for burning stuff , obviously put some news paper in but you can get some cheap fire lighters and that definately helps , also get a stick to poke through the holes , that helps 

only problem is you will stink of smoke , had a good burn up the other week , o/h put cloths straight into washing machine and I had a shower 

best of luck

Stagbettle , don't blame you for being up set , so annoying , letter sent no doubt by some jumped up official 

Would not let them get to you , I would ask them what they mean by " your plot doesn't appear to  satisfactory cultivated " also take some pictures of those that are worse than yours if they get difficult 

One of the good things about gardens/allottments is they are all different 

Carry on
