Thanks Mum - that's really what I meant.  I realise they will come back - particularly as my plot neighbour has done nothing to their plot and there are 2 foot high weeds now.  I'm thinking of asking the committee if they mind if I take my strimmer to it in order to minimise the damage from it.

If a weed is something troublesome then this isn't one - not sure I've seen it for sale anywhere though - can someone say what it might be please?

Could be. I was going to suggest marsh marigold based on the leaf shape, but the flowers are wrong.
Breaking new ground.............literally!

There is an 'incredible edibles' scheme operating behind a charity shop I volunteer in, at least I'm told it is operating back there as I never see any work done on the area. There is a lot of questionable decisions going on, such as soil that looks like it was just dug out of an allotment sitting in a container with no drainage... But there are signs something went on last year, such as the dried remains of runner beans on a trellis.

Since nothing is happening I've been given permission to do what I want back there, and the first task is weeding.



There are a few identifiable plants still there such as some neglected strawberries, but I keep seeing these large leaves with reddish stems in pots. Before I rip them out, I just wanted to check if they're actually anything or just a weed if possible?

Dock.

It'll have a very deep root!

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Good luck - we have lots of edible york beds around the city and they are really well supported, in the main!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I get this appearing randomly in flower pots sometimes. It is called Montia perfoliata, from the caryophyllaceae order. Pretty little thing with its flowers coming out of the centre of the leaves.


The less time you have, the more becomes available.

Thanks HilaryG wiki says it's a native american and the gold rush miners ate it, hence common name 'miner's lettuce' - and I found it in 'Wild flowers of Britain' where it says a rare introduced annual of sandy soils called 'Spring Beauty' --- this one is underneath a big (sort of) giant redwood

Look like one of the many variants of Willow Herb.
