I also ran the hoe through some thick weeds that had grown between my cauliflowers in the brassica tunnel. When you leave it that long it really is hard work. Much better to hoe them off when too small to resist - or even before they emerge! Unfortunately for me there are lots of places on the plot where the weeds have formed a mat of green and started climbing through the crops.
I finished hoeing inside my greenhouse frame to cut down the weeds there ready to lay the path and to start enriching the soil there.
I made one step forward which was to plant out the leeks that I got from the Trading Hut. There were enough plants in the bundle for a 10 foot row with a few extras at the end of the row. Hugh Merritt and his helpers have done a grand job producing strong plants - much bigger than the tiny seedlings I have got growing beside my parsnips. He tells me they are the type 'Musselburgh' which gives a long season through the winter.
