Little vandals caught on camera on the plot, more planting spuds and a present for me with my birthday dosh.
Planting potatoes whilst dodging the rain showers. Didn't get all done as per plan but a fair bit finished.
Competition photos, a dog training video and spending time in the potting shed moving things on and sowing.
A great day on the plot, BBQ snack lunch and sowing five types of carrots, parsnips and salsify plus borlotti beans and a bit more rotovating.
My slightly late birthday treat - the mother of all electric heated plant propagators. The Vitopod in the home greenhouse.
Still catching up, rotovating and planting out the broad beans (late!). The Gardener's World experiment on a raised bed that had strawberries and sad news about our old cat.
A day out to Clipstone Allotments open day. Despite freezing weather, a warm welcome from everyone there.
Planted asparagus and a few first early potatoes, finished digging plot 5 although it nearly killed me.
New old water butts from the outlaws, asparagus to plant and globe artichokes. Plus some good news about the book.
Last of the leeks up, ready for potatoes in the raised bed coldframe and a moan about the telly.
Had an interesting talk at the NVS about growing on an allotment under straw and under plastic sheeting.
A busy week, book doing well, onion sets planted and new thermostatically controlled propagator arrives for the home greenhouse.
