Finally got some stuff done on the allotment



Pulled up all the garlic, which appears to have rust, and onions that
shoudln't have been there, which had white rot. Turned it over and
put in a very late last row of broad beans (next to the nearly-ready
row of broad beans on one side and the newly transplanted in strawberry
plants). The plan is, once these are all done and out, to spread the
strawberry patch over to cover it. (All planted through weed blanket
this time - the old strawberry patch is just a huge pile of grass and
weeds atm!)

Weeded the potatoes, which are over-run with giant thistley things.
Nasty to weed, but they do come out nicely once you can get a grip on
them. Unfortunately I did that in the time I was meant to be putting
out the mini sweetcorns. The patch for them is rotorvated but not
weeded, which is annoying. :-(

Nick wanted to put the sweet potatoes out, but he got called out by
the bees, so that never happened.

And after looking at my carrot plot and finding the number germinated
has doubled to 6, I've thrown in loads and loads of out of date carrot,
scorzenera and radish seeds! Probably about 20000 seeds. Some of the
packs were 5 years or more out of date, so I'm not expecting more than
about 1% germination, but even if it's that amount ...

And - 2 cherry tomatoes are showing in the greenhouse.
