Didn't make it to the plot today. I had visitors all day, so even though it was sunny this morning for a while there was no chance of going. We have lots of friends and relatives booked in for the next two months, so I'll have lots of days when I can't garden. However, part of the reason for growing the veg is to feed our visitors so I must make the effort. They'll keep coming if I feed them well!
I did forget to mention yesterday that when I was weeding I found a bit of the dreaded Mare's Tail weed. I had been wondering what the wiry twisty brown roots were, then I found one with a kind of green cone on it. I was suspicious about it so I asked one of the other plotters and he said it was the dreaded Mare's Tail! So it looks like I'll be doing a lot of hoeing this year....and next....ad infinitum!
Tomorrow doesn't look favourable weatherwise....but I wont prejudge....just plan to go plotting in the afternoon and see what happens. My DH has a nasty cold so we wont get the compost heaps organised yet.
