I have been down 3 times and done quite a bit of work.
I have planted my self-sown sweet corn, a marrow/courgette plant and a butternut squash plant from the Trading Hut. The squash will grow into the bed of sweet corn as they grow well together - though the harvesting is a bit more difficult. I hope my yellow courgette seedling grow on quickly to go with the green courgettes I hope to get from the 'marrow' plant. I opened up my mature compost bin to enrich the planting hole for each plant. My system seems to work well as it was lovely and dark and crumbly.
I also planted a couple of tomato plants inside my glassless greenhouse frame. A barrow-load of compost improved the rather poor soil. They are new Blight resistant plants from Suttons called 'Crimson Crush'. (3 free plants for the cost of p&p.) I hope they taste good!
The weeds are growing apace. I hoed between the rows of parsnip and chard but can only see a few seedlings of parsnip. Perhaps I should have sowed a complete row - not 3/4 seeds at 6" stations - then thinned down to every 6" leaving room for a hoe between mature roots. Nevertheless, The weeds have germinated well and hand-weeding them is tedious even after hoeing between the rows.
I noticed some ripening strawberries on my first visit so harvested them. I picked those that showed any redness as I found the mice had nibbled the ripest ones. They ripened nicely on the window sill so I will harvest early again. Today (Sunday) I harvested more but found those in the weedy part of the bed were ripening as well despite the covering of weeds. I therefore spent much time and effort weeding the whole bed while harvesting. I filled a 2 litre ice cream tub with fruit and enjoyed a lovely strawberry dessert of the ripest at dinner.
I had harvested some broad beans earlier in the week but today I uprooted the autumn sown row and took 2 carrier bags full of bean pods home. That leaves space for a later sowing of dwarf French Beans. I also picked a meal's worth of peas from the autumn sown row.
There is so much green waste coming off the plot I must re-line my third compost bin as the other two are full and piles of greenery are piling up around the plot. When I clear the weeds from the back part of the plot I will have enough to half fill the bin immediately!
