This is what our allotment looked like last week when we went to see it…

It was heart-wrenching to see it so overgrown with weeds, especially when we put in so much effort over the winter to de-weed it and feed it with lots of manure.

So we pulled a lot of the easier weeds out and strimmed the rest – leaving it looking slightly but not a lot better by the time we left…

At least the potatoes and courgette/squash plants are doing well – and some gorgeous poppies have sprung up, which you can see we left.
