New allotment OMG...

Posted: 04/02/2015 at 18:23

Done some digging today dug and emptied two large bags of horse manure then turned the muck and filled them back up - hoping this will help them rot down faster by being turned 

The next time I want horse manure I would like it well rotted not fresh ish, want to be able to use it on some raised beds in spring one doing ok the other still slushy like cow poo 

New allotment OMG...

Oh what Weyplotter more info to look up re your tree

I do have a pop up frame netting thing to go over my raised bed that they will be going in hope that keeps the butterflies off from laying eggs, I did well one year growing them but not had much cauliflower success more the leaves not the middles 

I have to get more seed compost that is what I had left from last year

So who is going for fruit trees?

Snow mainly all melted away now

So here is the pics from the potato day

This is the row of organic potatoes, then the rest is not organic seeds potatoes grouped in 1st,2nd and main crop

Here is the runner bean seeds Enorma the only one you could have this year, they sell them for £2 for half pint glass, the way they sell all the beans, broad beans and peas except peas £1 for half pint glass.

This is what I purchased the 10 potato bags with the French beans on, the potatoes and seeds and the trays on the side, now all potatoes in egg boxes chitting

Here is another pic of the pea and bean seeds, except the pea show perfection that is a small pack from a stand, so I now have lots of seeds and runner beans should grow this year

Here is the potato you wanted Edd they did have it, if you still want then see if you can get it from

Roy this one would be a good one for your plot, also available from the link above
