Suze and l have been busy in the Willow garden with Stage Two since last Wednesday when the rains finally stopped, and we have enjoyed drier and, at times, sunnier weather.
“I have lost my smile, but don’t worry. The dandelion has it..”
I can’t say what it is about weeds that l have always loved? Perhaps it is quite simply because they are misunderstood like some animal species. Whatever your opinion or view is on weeds, they are everywhere, and they are here to stay.
Plot 17 has a total of 16 raised bed areas, although only 15 of them are functional as enclosed spaces. The 16th bed has no sides, but the soil is still in situ as if there were walls.
The first three ‘active’ episodes, 2, 3 and 4 of this season, showed you plot 17 as it was when Suze and l took it on board officially on the 9th of September. It wasn’t in terrible shape. It was neat and laid out okay and, thankfully, wasn’t overgrown.
