Did a quick hoe-round at the allotment today, though the snow yesterday and the day before appears to have beaten the weeds down, hurrah! There is exciting news about the daffodils as they’re now starting to form actual flower buds, well gosh:
The rhubarb is also looking very pretty, and we’re hoping it might gain some friends at some point!
Our main job of today though has been starting to cut down the autumn raspberry canes to the ground. They’re really easy to cut with secateurs though they’re so long that you have to be a bit careful that you don’t take your eye out when you’re disposing of them! Also heavy duty gloves are vital … We’ve done just under half the bed so will carry on next week. It’ll certainly make it a lot easier to weed. The canes we cut down today will be added to our garden waste bin at home – thank goodness we remembered to bring one of our green bags.
A very small harvest today – just sprouts! – and there haven’t been so many of these as we harvested last year. Though, to be fair, we didn’t plant as many either!
Have a great weekend!
