New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 22/01/2017 at 08:14

Hi Gardengirl, most of what you see is my allotment, it's 2 half plots, we got the first part 6 years ago and the second half 3 years ago. The shed is on one half and the GH is on the second. I have 4 beds that are dug, a few raised beds and the rest is fruit beds, paths and ' scrub' 😊. The polytunnel frames are covered in the summer to protect the fruit bushes.

The recent frost's have done a great job of breaking down the clay soil.

What is your weather like? (2)

-6C overnight, beautiful crisp sunny day here in Kent, lovely walk over the Downs this morning and no MUD!

No gardening today, the ground is frozen solid, -6C in the GH but the sweet peas looked OK.

Minus 6 Celsius when I left for work this morning. Minus 2 already, ground is frozen hard, one bonus is no mud on our dog walks😊.

Gardengirl, I finally remembered to take a picture of the shed for you to see. Still got the protective film on the windows. I'm really impressed with your pallet shed, I took the easy route and bought a 'flat pack' .

It still had a covering of snow when I popped over for some parsnips.

Poor Bracken, hope the treatment does the trick.

Gardengirl that's very handy having the netting in the shop.
