Areas on the allotment site are under standing water today. Storm Ciara and Strom Dennis have passed. The water table is very high and digging is a claggy business. I only need to dig out brambles and weeds until it is time to sow or plant this years crops.
I have the tenancy on Plot 30. I only did a small amount of work today. It is so slippery that working the ground is dangerous. I am continuing the clearing I began just over a year ago to make the plot productive. The plot is at one edge of the allotment site and although not on the site plan I know a small culverted drain runs along the length of it next to or just under the boundary fence. When I took on the plot last year it had been unused for four years and was a mess.
