The Lotty

I did manage to finish clearing the front garden beds so we look a bit tidier out there and have tackled some of the scrotty pots on the patio, but part of today's 'garden chores' was to visit the lotty and see what progress has been made there over the winter.

It is looking tidy enough but nothing has advanced since we saw it in December.  The vegetation/weeds/small shrubs have been cleared but there is no sign of the wild area which we were told would be worked on during the winter.

The 'jobs' we understood would be sorted were - digging out the wild area across the bottom of the plot, replacing soil if needed, putting up a rough log edging across the front of it and the beginning of some planting.  Even higher priority than that was to get some more raised beds in place ready for now (!) as we have a waiting list for them.  I am sad to see that didn't get done.  

We are home now and will try and find out what's happening or rather what will happen and when.  It would be a real shame to see this grind to a halt after all Donna's hard work to get it up and running.

It is pretty wet underfoot and there are some badly waterlogged areas. We already knew about those and drew up the plans accordingly - so, again, if the infrastructure is put in place it will be easier to access and work on the site most of the year.  Right now you need your wellies!

Lovely to see the playgroup are using their area and it is a neat as a pin.

Basically this is a case of watch this space......

That's my rhubarb and strawberries, just poised to go....
