Weed or Veg IDs from my allotment!

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 21:52

No it's ok! I think we will just pull everything up that looks remotely weed-like. We left it for a week or so while we had some 'us' time away from gardening, and they've swamped the lettuces we had sewn, it won't take much to weed it all and sew some more and be a tad more vigilant! The front garden is pretty much taken up with broccoli in little pots too, so maybe we'll put them in there instead. The world is our oyster as they say!

Asked the OH who did some weeding the other day and confirmed they had quite thick white roots. Bah. What a shame!

The last time beans would have been grown on it would have been 5/6 years ago, unless they were dumped on it last summer maybe - it was an ignored plot for several years, and used as a fly tipping spot for two years. We dug up half a car engine last month!

How disheartening, to rid the soil of bramble roots that had taken over to replace it with bindweed.

Even with it being a young plant will there be thick roots already? There was no bindweed when we started work on it, just lots of very established brambles, 5 years worth of growth!

On reflection the third does look terribly like this bindweed seedling.

fidget, I wondered if the first was a parsnip/carrot great minds 3rd I was hopeful for a bean of sorts as it's cropped up a lot, and I dug up a couple of beans when we were digging over the land. What would you recommend? I don't want to leave it in case it's bindweed, should I dig it up, try and contain it for a couple of weeks and see what happens?

Unusual that it's a geranium as I've seen none in the allotments, it's a sentimental plant for me and my family

Damn, I was hoping it wasn't going to be anything like bindweed, but it's springing up everywhere it fancies, the third one that is, the first two seem to be isolated seedlings just in one patch. Ta muchly!

the first two reminded me a little of my parsnip seedlings a little so wanted check it wasn't a lucky veg seedling before pulling.

Different, but also feathered leaves

These bigger leaves keep popping up everywhere. I'd love to know what they might be before I yank them all up tomorrow.

First time growing toms this year, got 5 established plants, full of unripe fruit and flowers, the leaves at the bottom are a little crisp and curled, but judging by how much fruit we have and the amount of flowers we are still getting I'm not too worried. I'm in Worcester and had a good mix of lots of sun and rain. My strawberries however have struggled. About 6 from three big plants.
