As this week of gorgeous weather draws to a close I thought I’d just give a quick update on how the allotment is doing. As you can see, the hot weather has not tempered the verdant-hue of the allotment’s cornucopic vegetative assemblage. If anything, the plants are growing better than ever.
Hopefully today’s soaking with the hosepipe (sorry readers from the south) will give the plants some semblance of normality after a week of un-Manchester like weather.!
The addition of Liz and Patricia’s wonderful labels (incorporating photographs taken of illustrations from the Grindon collection) is a great way of demonstrating what is being grown to the public.
Other tasks completed included tieing up some kale, litter-picking and watering the green roof. If you’re around Manchester and fancy helping out then the allotmenteers meet every Friday at 2pm. Adios for now!
