Gotcha! Vandals on Camera

Little vandals caught on camera on the plot, more planting spuds and a present for me with my birthday dosh.

Planting Potatoes

Planting potatoes whilst dodging the rain showers. Didn't get all done as per plan but a fair bit finished.

Potting Shed

Competition photos, a dog training video and spending time in the potting shed moving things on and sowing.

Carrots, Parsnips, Salsify & BBQ

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.

Vitopod Propagator

Electric Heated Plant Propagator – Vitopod

My slightly late birthday treat - the mother of all electric heated plant propagators. The Vitopod in the home greenhouse.

Sad News, Experiments & Rotovating

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.

Clipstone Allotments

Back to the Future – Clipstone Allotments

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 & Asparagus

New old water butts from the outlaws, asparagus to plant and globe artichokes. Plus some good news about the book.

Catching Up & The Last Leeks

Last of the leeks up, ready for potatoes in the raised bed coldframe and a moan about the telly.

NVS Meeting, Growing under Straw

Had an interesting talk at the NVS about growing on an allotment under straw and under plastic sheeting.
