I have had a couple of trees at the edge of my plot that have been casting a large shadow over my plot for a number of years.

I can remember that the Oak tree was only about a foot high when I came onto the plot in1994 and the Ash appeared a few years later.

I left them never thinking that they would become a nuisance in years to come!

This year I grew my Chrysants in the bed under them and they were rubbish simply through lack of light.

I asked the Council ( my allotment landlord) about a month ago if they would remove them, never thinking they would due to the infamous "cutbacks" we keep hearing about.

Then lo and behold I got a phone call this morning about 8-15am asking if it was OK to remove them.

So at 10 o'clock this morning there were two trees and at 12 o'clock there were none as you can see in the attached photos.

OK I had to clear the logs away, but they shredded the branches and covered a grot spot in the area where my compost heap is and it has really improved the appearance of the area.

So all in all " a good mornings work"!

Saw Rick Stein's Mexico prog last night, praising tomatilloes.

Does anyone grow them and, if so, is the flavour worth it and do you get a good crop?
