Bio , I have come across using weeds as you said , however , would not put mares tail in it and need to be careful of seeds 

Could do with a couple of weeks of resonable weather to get allotment and garden up to date after lots of visitors / holidays in May and June 

Jureslum or globe artichoke , have both on plot and very different , which one have you got ?

Hello , terrible weather this week , rained started Monday and has not stopped , Wednesday really heavy rain , some farmers crops flattered , should improve for weekend 

Bulbs , what about Crocus and Grape Hyasins ?

Due to bad weather and visitors not been to allotment this week , no doubt weeds are growing well !

I have Lilly's in garden , however , last few years problem with Lilly Beetle 

For garden , why not see what grows well locally ?

Hope you ,  O/H , Bengle  and Pushkin are well

Popped up to plot yesterday with visitors as they wanted to see what we had done , fortunately only light rain , some damaged from very heavy rains on Wednesday , infact , some farmers crops have been flattened 

Visitors went today , so hoping to get to plot soon 

Gooseberrys are looking and tasting good , the red ones in particularly 

Still loads of strawberries and rasberry to pick , if the birds have not got them 

Gardengirl , hope chick peas come good , still nothing showing on ginger 

Hope alls well with everybody
