11th day at the plot
Weather at the plot: autumnal, mild and still. 98% humidity. 15 degrees at 3:00pm, 14 degrees at 5:30pm. At the allotment for a few hours this afternoon. I walked the hoe up there, through Hartshill Park. * Hoed the remaining weeds off the lower plot. * Put ten half-sacks of bark chippings onto the path edges, to help suppress weeds. * Pruned and then dug out a big unwanted gooseberry bush from my immediate neighbour's plot (with permission). * Dug over a strip of the middle plot, in order to plant my row of gooseberry bushes. I'm hoping these can be trained into a 'hedge' that will divide the lower from the middle plot. One of them had just been left in a pot, and stuffed in with the mint. There are still two more small ones elsewhere, that will have to be transplanted into the row on another day...
