Gone to Seed...

The Early Purple Sprouting Broccoli has finally gone to seed and is ready to come out. It is always very welcome as the harbinger of Spring on the allotment but we won't really miss it now as we are flush with Asparagus for the time being. Must remember this next time the horsetail is really getting me down...

My PSB looks the same and last week I pulled it all out. Lucky you having asparagus to carry you on, it's something I want to grow next year once I have more control over the weeds at my lottie.

Mmmm... control over weeds, what a delightful thought...they're going mad all over my plot at the moment! If you dig out the weeds from where the asparagus is going as thoroughly as possible after that it's just a matter of doing what you can. In the matter of horsetail I have been reduced to taking the tops off to try and slow them down a bit when I see them in the asparagus bed.
Good luck, Mike
