Watering and Weeding

Been away for two and a half weeks, the plants in the allotment became yellow due to lack of rain, but weeds grow well.

On Friday afternoon, I watered garlic chives, garlic and strawberries. So tired, leave leek and broadbean to JQ (my husband). He did watering today and I did weeding. It was cold and windy.

Our right side neighbor, Marilyn and Tom have given up their plot because of Tom’s health problem. They had the allotment for twenties years! They both gave us lots of help when we first started. Marilyn used to have a notebook at the hand and do planning and drawing. When we asked Tom questions, he always pointed us to Marilyn. They will be missed!

Today met the new tenant. The two ladies on the left side came as well. They were chatting as they were digging and weeding as usual.

We need to work harder to catch up!
