The Allotment Wife

Slug doom!


I weeded and watered the allotment on the way home today. All looking good, but I found two slugs. Two!! Shock, horror, indeed. They have now gone to the Great Slug Doom in the sky (hurrah), and I have made a mental note to take the slug pellets when we go at the weekend.

Under this glorious sunshine, the chrysanthemums are looking particularly fine, I think. I’ve also deadheaded the sunflowers, but there are more blooms to come there, so that’s cheery.

Anyway, I introduced myself briefly to my allotment neighbour at Plot D3 – he, like me, is definitely praying for rain. On the way out, I looked at the noticeboard to see if there are any more details about the September show, but nothing there yet. The excitement is mounting, I can tell you.

  1. My sis & I only have one raised bed – 25 feet long x 4 feet wide (that makes 100 ft2, I think 🙂 We figured that would be enough as a start. We will be able to keep the same plot from year to year. Main successes so far have been radishes & Swiss chard!! Though I’m looking very soon to purple podded beans (which turn green when cooked)… I will follow your progress x
