Good to hear you have managed to get some pallets for your shed Gg, sounds like a good haul.
Weeding seems an endless task. Part of my plot remained undug untill a few weeks ago. I realised I was just keeping the weeds down with the strimmer and not reallly making any progress, as time was primarily taken keeping the growing area's free from weeds.
Planting has paid dividends though and there is now lots of stuff covering ground on the cultivated part to slow down/stop the weeds. Something has even been leaving holes in the leaves of bindweed
I've started to rough dig the top of the plot, taking out the periennial roots, covering with cardboard, muck and then plastic. I get cardboard from a local corner shop, the muck isn't that well rotted but is delivered by the tonne just outside my gate and by next yr should have been taken in by the worms and rotted down.
On a bonus, went to the plot yesterday to find a tonne of chopped bark had been delivered to the site. There was no sign saying don't take and as I hadn't received an e-mail about it, recovered the bark paths I have. There was a trail of chippings going down the track so I presumed other plot holders were taking it and the council do make random delivery's, one just after Christmas...
Never a person to miss an opportunity...
