Can anybody see an end to all this rain that we are getting because I cant. I got up early this morning and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun was shining, it put a bounce in my step and it made me feel quite happy inside.
I got ready to go to my allotments and it started to drizzle and my heart sank, buy the time I got to the allotment it was getting heavier it was almost like I had stepped into another time zone, one which I was really getting fed up with. It was like having 2 days rolled into one and this was in a couple of hours. The carpark of the allotments were packed with cars and within half an hour it was empty and I was the only person over there.
My poor girls they hate being shut inside and let me know their disgust, they were making all sorts of growling noises they really are fed up, but probably not as fed up as me, in between downpours i took a look around and the weeds are going mad especially the marestail which is growing almost infront of my eyes and I cant use this because its poisonous to my girls so they cant eat it. Their favourite weed is the sticky weed that clings to your cloths – I cant think what the name of it is off hand. I cant do any weeding because the ground is far to wet so I am just making mud pies, and I daren’t stand on the beds I would ruin the structure of them but with all this rain the nutrients have probably disappeared anyway so I will have to add more compost before I plant anything, but when that will be I dont know. How many other gardeners are as fed up as me, let me know what you are doing, are you sowing seeds inside for instance and if so whats on the go at the moment.
