Weed or Veg IDs from my allotment!

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 21:10

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.

 

tomatoes

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.

 

Rake

One of the reasons I've stopped using the forum is the frequent snide comments about Monty... It's juvenile and just plain unhelpful when it's questions like this. I thought the rake looks pretty useful to me, and it's not as if Monty seems to have the newest equipment, it was only the week before I saw him wearing boots with holes in them, and if I'm not mistaken his tools look pretty well used and old. It's not as if he uses tools every week with brand names emblazoned on them.

 

Frankly I think some of your attitudes are pathetic and tiresome.

I'm not a celebrity worshipper, far from it, but from what I can tell MD rarely seems to cause offense to people, quite unlike other celebrities that grace our TV screens. If you don't like him avoid threads that talk about him, the items he uses, and the methods he uses in order to grow.
