September Time

Unfortunately we ended up being the victims of blight this year - the soggy end to summer pretty much destroyed all of the tomatoes and potatoes. Very sad and frustrating. We weren't alone tho - many of the other allotmenteers have suffered as well with most vegetables seeing a squishy end. We've lost the herb bed to couch grass which will have to be cut back vigorously and the sweetcorn has been eaten by rats. We even found a dead rodent on our brussel sprout patch! Is there no end to our battle with nature?
