I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do, but all the fun stuff was either a WIP, or waiting for timber, so I was just pottering. Luckily, two guys I know were also there, we'll call it a hot date, cos the sun was out and we had lunch together!
Also joined by the resident ducks, who were trying to nick the nails from one guy. I helped hold the wood down so he could saw (on his knees!) a bit faster, without it moving around like a spinning wheel! He thought it was taking up my own allotment time, but I turned it into a coffee break!
My own work was a little less interesting - you could tell, the ducks weren't being nosey. But I did manage to weed 4 beds (well, nearly finished the last one, but had to go and get ready for work).
The first bed did have Red Popping Corn, Onions & Garlic in, now just Onions and Garlic.
The second bed had Potatoes, Leeks and a tray of unplanted Leeks (which have been transplanted into spaces in the first bed).
The third bed had Brussel Sprouts, Sprouting Brocolli and Leeks (or Onions & Garlic). I kinda ordered too many Onions and Garlic last year!

|1st bed nearest you (can't see it)|
|Tidied up - 1st nearest you!|
I'll be back another day (soon as I get my rota) and weed that bit, turn it over to make sure I got the dock out properly and I've got some mushroom compost to go in there. One guy has got donkey manure, so we're doing a bit of a study of that one (as you do!).
