New allotment OMG...

Posted: 07/05/2015 at 16:50


I am just finishing harvesting chard and p s broccoli. I sweat chard down like spinach, drain it and squash it and freeze in small balls and eat it in the winter.

I have runner beans, French climbing and barlotti beans to go in. Small area so things have to climb.

Radishes growing well as is garlic (Autumn sown) and shallots.

Lettuce in GH ready to go out after frosts.

Toms, cumbers, peppers, chillies, aubergine, courgette and a gourd thing seeds bought in Greece. Spuds in sacks and will use sacks for late carrots, less root fly later. 

Need to do my spinach and beetroot ASAP as well as my bunching spring onions and rocket, and coriander and basil for GH 

It keeps blinking raining on me  However the soil is lovely and warm so battle stations ASAP   

Hope you all have a great productive season

Hi, what a chatty lot you've been today

Voted, done SM shop for mum, pulled up the p s broccoli ready to make a bean bed, potted on my aubergines and liatris and then done some weeding. 

Time to consider what I'm doing with salmon for tonight's meal.

Have a good evening all  

So upset

Heck soz if I've offended, my OH used to work out his route as most economical for the firm then they installed a system that planned their routes so they used to wave hello to each other as they passed up and down the motorway, working in each others areas. Then trackers were fitted and they could tell if you moved the damn van off the drive to get the car out

I'd alter the route unless you have a tracker fitted ..joking  Go steady.

What's wrong with my tomato plant? :(

Caral why not grow a few from seed far cheaper than a grated plant and if some don't germinate no problem.

Hosta be careful  Drive slowly and you might see a garden centre where you can have a little rest. 

First Petrol Mower

Honda get my vote, they are pricey but well worth the money.

I have experience of a Hayter mower, does the job well, less expensive but not a substantially built mower like a Honda.
