Going down to the allotment to pull out even more weeds.
Hopefully plant out my sweetcorn, tomato plants, and squash plants if i have time after all the weeding :(
Got the weekend off work, and the weather is nice, so might get plenty done. (fingers crossed)

Finished roofing the shed (o/h did!).
Planted a couple of courgette plants, sown another row of lettuce & broad beans.
Potted up some butternut squash plants as well.

Spent most of the afternoon pulling out all (?) the weeds that have decided
to pop up since we had the deluge of rain.
Back down there later on today to carry on the good work.
Might even plant some more spuds.
