update on allotment

I didn't get back from Athens till late on Saturday so Sunday was a very busy day at the allotment. While we were away the tomatoes had gone beserk so we had to plant them regardless of the weather. We spent around 7 hours up there in total - mostly planting them up and then building frames and frost/wind protectors. (In the UK it seems the key to success in vegetable gardening is knowing how to swaddle up plants!) Also we did some weeding and watered in the nematodes (which are supposed to kill slugs organically), etc etc. This photo shows Dave watering in... you can see we still have a few beds to clear at the top end, but we're getting there.
