Remember Remember the 5th Pile of Weeds!

Remember Remember the 5th Pile of Weeds!

November 5, 2015 0 By Digging the Earth

It doesn’t seem like five minutes since we were trundling up to our Derbyshire village field last year for an evening of sparkle, beer and fire! For a small community we are very lucky to have such events as this and the summer carnival arranged by a dedicated few.

As an asthmatic I must admit that I’m non too keen on having bonfires myself and would always choose to go to an organised event instead and stay a good distance away. I was wondering if many allotment people had their own fires regularly to rid themselves of garden waste? My compost heap (organic dumping ground) is slowly growing very big indeed and its full of dandelions, so it really shouldn’t be going back onto the plot. What is the best way of getting rid of the weeds, binning them? Burning them?

This is something that I’m really going to have to do some research into before I end up with more heap than plot! I’ll be sure to report back with any enlightenments! Until then enjoy your Guy Fawkes Night and stay safe!
