I returned with my grandson to get as much done before he goes home. He set about finishing off digging in the green manure while I tied in the blackberry next to him and hoed my onions and garlic. It was rather damp so some of the weeds would probably survive but hopefully most will die. I shall have to repeat the hoeing or hand weed later but there will be less competition for the onions. It is said that onions are really sensitive to bring crowded by weeds. As I finished I realised that the garlic and onions on the other side of the plot were in an even worse state but would have to be left until next time.
Meanwhile my grandson got busy digging over the strip where I plan to plant my first row of peas before it was time to go home.
