A lovely afternoon tempted us onto the allotment. Jean started the next wave of weeding while I made another frame for next year. Tony uses frames for bigger plants. The frames are covered with netting, mine are about 1.9m long and 0.7m wide. The get used in pairs, with plants growing between them. The ends and top are covered with netting, which can easily moved to get between the frames. The frames stand up by tying them to canes pushed into the ground. I added little plastic legs to keep the frames off the ground so they don't rot too quickly.

The plot is certainly emptying so I think we'll be having a dig over then collecting some horse manure to mulch the ground for the winter.
