I'm having to make do with window-ledges and a table next to a window, for propagation. It will be sometime before my jungle-bashing has cleared enough garden to reclaim my allotment - I'm contemplating a polytunnel as I can't afford glass cover for the area I want ... Currently making sporadic progress, weather and other commitments have to be navigated. Problem is a bit like one of those tile sliding games. Sometimes it feels as though nothing much is happening, despite spending hours out there. OH and housemates do tell me they can see a tremendous change. Leaf fall is currently obscuring large areas, raking up will be needed I think. One or two of the trees are going to get a mulch of fallen leaves, another pile are going in the hedgehog run ... Almost the last of the windfall apples are now in the kitchen, more jam to make - and OH has provided the makings for three fruit marmalade. So plenty to do this week ... The peach / nectarine seedling is still going, although it is the only thing currently with red spider mite. I can't quite get rid of the ***** things. The "money plants" are taking over (I wish they would live up to their name and do something positive to my bank balance !) and one of my MIL tongues has passed Sorry for the length of that ^^^ !
