New allotment OMG...

Posted: 30/05/2015 at 09:49

off to the allotment today

Growing sweetcorn

Posted: 29/05/2015 at 23:56

I had an issue this year  - new seeds as well, sowed them inside in my root trainer went into plastic greenhouse one 1 germinated out of 20 so went investigated them rooted seeds with like small maggots in them horrible chucked them out

Normally do well with them each year, you can germinate them in between damp kitchen roll - think I will do that technique next year then you know they will grow when in soil  

Brought some plantlets today from GC not that much money and get quite a few plantlets

New allotment OMG...

My broad beans are flowering - but no beans still waiting, Ginagibbs I need to plant my celery soon, some leaves yellow have put some seaweed food pellets on them  

Fruitcake they sound fascinating to watch

Trying to sort out a youtube video of my plot sometime soon bit difficult to figure out the putting it all together   

Everything is getting watered in nicely

Hello all

Dug over one of my veg beds and a half of another then planted out my tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes, peas in pea bed and some tagetes around the edge, still have a few more tomato plants  

Then played shifty things out of cold frame to potting table and bits out of plastic grow house into coldframe - found lots of slugs in coldframe now into bin they nibbles at my sunflowers

My poppy's have started flowering looking pretty

great planter there - you could use grass cuttings at the bottom or anything to bulk out the bottom before putting bags of compost in then you buy less compost  

Dove how is you pond?

Hello all

Dove love it that looks so good just right with the fence colour, nicely filled

WonkyWomble good to make use of things that others chuck out, like that saying one mans trash is another mans treasure

Lots to do in the garden today weather grey and some times sunny

Chicky the greenhouse is for the allotment, this crow bar broke was basking a pallet when it happened, was a good one I still have the head bit but not easy to use like that other end still useable flat end

WonkyWomble only very small when wombles were on can't remember much they liked collecting stuff asked mum they make stuff out of what they collected sound about right - my pallet projects will be a fence for the allotment plot, a screen box for the station water butt maybe a bench for the allotment but think it will be a while by the time they get sorted

Station looking good went to sort out rubbish today lots of foxgloves

We had meat ball for tea yummy   

Night all

WonkyWomble great you have been pallet bashing good OH let you use the tools I pinch my dads tools but did break the crow bar it snapped off - so need a new one, I do need to do some more soon

Got a half pallet today to sort out a fence for front of allotment plot but need to find a lot more  KEF that is right me and pallets

Think spotted dragon fly larvae in the pond
