Poppies And Plot

The new plot is double the size of the other one, but it is totally overgrown. Heres me photographed by Cat. The top layers have been scraped by a digger, but the weeds/grasses are growing back fast.

Fields of Poppie today on the way to Walton allotment. The sun was blazing, and it was dry all day. I love the hazy red lines across the horizon.

A good omen was seeing this Robin. He hopped around me eating uncovered worms, and sitting on my digging fork.

The end of day one. The Rhubarb's , and Globe Artichoke's were under all the thistles, nettles, and grasses. I need to clear one row for my Courgettes, and Squashes. It was hard going with sweat pouring off me, and the Nettles nipping my hands and legs.
Rome was not built in a day I kept reminding myself. I'm working two long days, so work has stopped untill Wednesday. They have forecast a heatwave over the next few days.
