Having dropped by the Trading Hut to buy a bag of Vermiculite for my seed sowing and helped deal with a dispute between allotment neighbours, I arrived on the plot very late.
I had looked back through my blog photos at home I finally could sort out which leafmould bin to empty this year. However that meant I had to clear a stack of poles and bricks from on top of the rescue of last year's leaves so I can move them out of the way to get at the bin. That done I could drag several bags out of the way and up on top of the others and then open up the chicken wire retainer.
That enabled me to dig out a few barrow loads of part decomposed leaves and spread them over the bed that used to be covered by the Phacelia, green manure. I also spread some 'leafmould' under the blackberry vines to improve the soil and stifle the weeds - with the help of the worms etc.
I was then called home to have lunch at the beach hut which, given the weather, was impossible to refuse.
