Creeping buttercup was taking over bed J especially around the artichoke and derelict cold frame and spreading around bramble. So I dismantled the cold frame, burnt it and cut down all the buttercup and the sorrel which had gone to seed as is also getting out of control. Put most of the top cuttings on the bonfire (very smoky and antisocial), but also double bagged some with water to rot it. Will fork compost into bed J, and poss plant squash there or sow with green manure. Will be potato plot next year.
Also weeded between brassica in bed E. Have more purple sprouting broccoli than anything else (which we don’t need) but other broccoli and red cabbage look OK.
