Super Heroes to the Rescue

We’ve had glorious weekend weather here in Wales which has allowed allotmenteers to get soooooooooooo much work done. ย The allotment site was a hive of activity and it was lovely to catch up with ‘the neighbours’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Plot 5A from the front...everything seems to be growing nicely :-)

Plot 5A has been planted up and is ticking away nicely with simple watering and weeding daily plus the occasional feeding.

However I’m a glutton for ‘punishment’ – I’ve taken the over grown ‘hell of a state’ allotment, 4A, next door. ย I couldn’t resist!!

I really did need more room, honestly! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย I’ve been working like mad to try and clear plot 4A and today a group of Super Heroes lent a hand for and hour or so…Superman, Spiderman and the Princess!

Spiderman even checked the quality of the worms ๐Ÿ™‚

4A is beginning to look like an allotment instead of a wilderness garden!

Hard work is beginning to pay off!

Once the weeds have been cleared the digging will begin in earnest…I need to be quick though – I don’t fancy the idea of digging in the summer heat! ย Think I’m going to need more help from my Super Heroes ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Getting there slowly (well not as quick as I would like, lol) and thank you. I’ve inherited 3 rows of raspberries which have been left to run wild ๐Ÿ˜• Cut down one but thinking of taming the other two! (Need to stop them taking over the allotment!!) I need some advice from my fellow, experienced, allotmenteers…any tips? Anyone????


      1. Same with me. My second plot has loads of raspberries but they’re in a clump rather than rows. Difficult to weed and pick fruit. I’ve left them because I can’t bear the thought of digging them up but I guess I’ll eventually have to thin them out. Perhaps you need to see how yours fruit this year and then make a decision.

      2. Good idea…I’ve dug out one row and I”m leaving the other two at the moment because I felt sorry for the bees that are constantly working on them haha (I”m sad, I know!) The weeds…HUGE docks, bindweed, grass, rosebay willow herb, danilions – the list goes on – are crowding around the canes. I”ll have to try and tackle them ๐Ÿ˜•
