Week 3

Seeds have arrived. Hooray! Planted some tomato, aubergine and cucumber seed and put them in the airing cupboard in a propagator. We’ll see if they germinate. Did lots of digging on the plot this week. Back-breaking work. Getting rid of the grass clumps is the hardest, Ryan did that bit. Meanwhile, I got on with some digging over and weeding at the top of the plot. We met one of the other plot holders, an older guy called David. He gave us lots of advice. He told us to burn our weeds and put the ash on the potato bed. He also told us that the fruit bushes are raspberries and gooseberries, which is great! AND he gave us six garlic plants. He was nice. He’s in the background of the shot here.
