Over run allotment
Hi I’m really struggling to keep on top of my allotment. The weeds are winning! I have a new polytunnel and find opening up watering and closing down each day quite tying. 20 mins to water everything when no rain. Paths are full of weeds. Others on allotment keep saying I should use weedkiller but I dont use chemicals, that’s the whole point of growing your own, knowing they are free from chemicals. I’ve planted up loads, cabbage, courgette runner beans carrot, pak Choi , parsnip etc etc. Anyone have any tips on keeping it all manageable without spending hours and hours which I dont have as I work. I have 2 x 80 meter paths so what’s best way to keep them from becoming overgrown. Thanks jill
