weeds and more weeds
I have not been to the allotment as much as i have over the past few months for one reason and another. Ive decided to make raised beds to keep the weeds under control for next year.
Having trouble with catapillars in my greenhouse at the minute :-( lost quite a lot of toms and peppers to the b!$^£&£%
Might nip down tomorrow morning for a bit of a dig

Its been 2 months so thought i had better post an update.
The weeds have taken over, just spent 2 hours weeding a small patch and been eaten alive by something or other. Not been able to do much recently what with the hot weather!
Lifted some spuds which tasted great! Got courgettes coming out of my ears!
Tomatoes are not ripening for some reason, peppers starting to flower!

Tonight I have been messing about with cows!
I have been de-horning calves which is not the nicest thing to do but needs to be done! I wont go into all the details.
As for the Allotment, I have planted my toms and cucumber. Put in a row of brussels that were given to me and planted a couple of rows of brussels and parsnip seed.

Sheep and a tractor
A few pics from tonights action at college. (small holding course)
The lambs which were having an injection and worming stuff given to them. (I got to do quite a few of them but there was 6 of us doing it)
The ewes had their feet trimmed and went in the dip.
For all you tractor fans this is the Massey Ferguson that dropped off some donkey crap last week.
As for lottie stuff, a lot of things had dried out today and some peas have almost come through.
