Just what we needed, wood chips!

Remember last week I was moaning about how the weeds on the paths were causing more trouble than the weeds in the beds? Well it seems the allotment Gods were listening, as I arrive at the plot on Monday night I was greeted by the sight of a huge pile of wood chippings had been delivered to the site during the day. Talk about good timing…

So, the last two evenings have been spent doing a huge weed of the paths, one section at a time, and then covering them in wood chips to create a much neater looking plot. See, about half done so far and I think it’s looking pretty good…

In the foreground there you can see my little pea wall made out of some chicken wire and posts I ‘liberated’ from my parents garage. I think we’re going to need about twice as much as that but it’s a start. I was going to put some of the peas we’ve got at home in as well but since we’re forecast snow for the weekend I figured best wait a few days and see what happens…

Hey lucky you. The plot is looking great. Carol Klein is a huge fan of them, apparently they are very good for suppressing weeds and can be walked on in any weather, just what you need for the weekend ahead..!

Great idea. I need to do something like this after building my raised beds to keep down the weeds and grass.

OK, now I am jealous, I want wood chips! The track through our site gets very muddy and wood chip would be just the thing.

My plot paths are wood chips. They were free, and of course are environmentally friendly.
It's been snowing here in London today so I'm glad I did some work on the plot during the week.
You're doing really well with yours.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.Cheers!

And so right you were about the snow! I watered my garden to get rid of it as it was weighing things down a lot.

Good grief you put me to shame. My plot looks a bit bedraggled, a bit like it's owner.

Still, early days...

Wood chips are a wonderful mulch. I use them in my garden. Your plot looks great!
