Reclamation Continues

Now here is a family that really intend to get to grips with their allotment. Laid out in four beds after stripping off the top with a mechanical digger, edging the plot with wood and laying hardcore for the paths. Do you get the feeling there is a lanscape gardener at work here? You would be right.

Some of the other plots have not fared so well in their reclamation.

Black sheeting has been laid here and left to kill off the weeds underneath. The persistence of thistles probably was not bargained for . Along the joint of two strips of the black polythene thistles have lifted the overlap to let in the light and the thistles have grown on fairly strongly. However, it is better progress than the patch where the thistles have been left to take over again.
