One job is to earth up the potatoes. Last year, we'd pretty much finished doing this at this point in the season, but this year, everything is coming up more slowly so we're still at it. Fortunately Ellis is a dab-hand at this, and got through the job pretty quickly. He then joined Dan in putting his hoe to good use, taking out weeds from the area next to the polytunnel. If only everything here grew where we wanted it to!
We also got on with more planting in the sensory garden. Helen added some more plants and shrubs to add to the lovely bee and butterfly friendly plantings. Mark also helped out, braving the attentions of ants to seek out the sneaky docks, thistles and brambles that keep trying to muscle in on the main flowering bed.
