The weather a bit better today so down tout suite to the plot to do some much needed weeding.

Cleared bed one of the remaining shallots, weeded and replanted with four slightly slug bitten cucumber plants bought from the plant scheme. (Burpless tasty green)


They look a bit lonely but they will be joined very soon by their best friends willow herb, buttercup and fat hen.

I should have cleared the onion bed next but my knees and back declared they had had enough crawling around.  So instead I pulled the garlic which as usual has succumbed to rust.  Some quite decent bulbs this year, certainly enough to see me through the winter.



Brought all the onions and shallots home in the pram, to dry in the garage.

I'm pooped!
