Our new allotment started 27 December 2011, taking over someone else's orginal plan has been interesting, they left some canes, strawberry plants, blackberries and a plum tree! I've updated the picture - Day 1 view is at the bottom of the blog.

1 Feb 2012 - Tidy up time - Part 2
Second job on the list was the strawberry
bed. As you can see, it needed it.
I really thought I was there to dig it over. It all looked so dead!
Pleasantly surprised to find not only a lot of strawberry plants survived, (you can see little green bits with a magnifying glass) but I managed to get quite a few runners, so I'm going to start a new bed tomorrow - I don't know if this bed has had it's 3 years or not, so it's getting just one more. The fork is by either a really annoying dock leaf that refuses to budge or another horseradish....grrrrrr to both!
