Dig for Victory: Strimming the grass

Not much to report from the visit today other than I strimmed the grass. I would have liked to have strimmed far more but the battery ran out. With it being a new allotment I wasn’t sure what was under the grass so I took it slow and steady while wearing the safety glasses.

    Sean, I can’t find the post where you asked about what flowers to start that would grow fast….. I was thinking today about fall seedlings. How about starting herbs on your plot? Several sprout quickly and some flower… dill especially. Throw in some thyme, parsley, fennel…. any cool loving herbs with the calendula and marigolds already suggested. Voila – you have your culinary and medicinal herb bed started for next year.
