The unending mud on the allotment caused by the heavy rain has meant we are admitting defeat over the state of our paths. We have bought a load of paving stones from B&Q which were delivered to my house on Tuesday. I moved them to the allotment yesterday and today. We will get them on to the paths shortly. We also have a pile of wood chip - the hedges were brought down to size just over a year ago and we had the branches and twigs chipped. We shall use the wood chippings on the ground around the hen houses to absorb some of the moisture. There is a sea of mud surrounding the henhouses at the moment. Whilst the ducks love it, the hens hate it.
