April 2017

Well the year got off to a mad start! Bits & pieces bought to help in my voyage of discovery. I built some extra raised beds on the plot and treated the newly discovered raised beds to a makeover. Ooo – what to plant where?

This year there will be as much going on at home as on the allotment – if not more. I realised that there is no point in growing the things I need a mile away from where the are needed quickly – so as far as the allotment is concerned out with the soft fruit bushes, out with the strawberries, out with the herbs and out with the spuds that need watering in pots. I’m too lazy to grow potatoes in the ground and my excuse is that the ground is too stony anyway (the plot is located on an old quarry!)
