New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 11/08/2016 at 21:24

I used L shaped brackets to anchor my shed down. 


Went to the plot to water, about six sunflowers had been blown over, one had snapped. The others seemed to be still attached to their roots, so I stood them back up and secured them as best I could. Not sure they will live though...


Gardensuper Store is having a closing down sale, 20% off everything so bought an edging spade and some other bits  

Please help me figure out what's happening.

If it was flea beetle you'd see them jumping when you disturb the foliage and they prefer tender leaves on seedlings.

Spent the afternoon on the plot. It was a nice afternoon, cloudy and not to hot.


Pruned fruit bushes and mulched with leaf mould. Covered a bed with plastic to stop weeds from growing and cut back runners on one of the strawberry beds. Even managed a tip run.


Sunflowers and Dahlia's took a beating from wind earlier in the week, a few had snapped. I don't have anything strong enough to stake the sunflowers with as they are so tall.


Came home with lots of veg and flowers. 

Composting

I was quite impressed with Monty's compost bins. It's motivated me to give mine more attention and turning the compost heap is at the top of my list of things to do...
