What we have here is a failure to germinate

Slightly better weather this weekend. I managed to get down on Sunday morning and got the grass cut. All looking much better. There’s some frost damage to the potatoes. But the big disappointment is that the carrots, leeks and beetroot sowed a few weeks ago haven’t germinated.  Hopefully, with better weather this week, we might see some action.

Two wet weekends

The last two weekends have been wet, and limited my visits to quick  checks to see how the allotment is doing. Everything seems to be growing well especially the weeds. I scythed  a lot down last week, but haven’t been able to make it over with a mower yet. Hopefully tomorrow.
