scroggin...The weeds seem to be less in the beds which were covered over winter. I"ve two long beds still covered. The soil is like black gold when first uncovered...๐Ÿ˜€


Hoping to get glass cut tomorrow for GH and take toms, Aubergine's, chillies and peppers to the plot over the weekend.


Happy growing everyone 


Do we need to start a '  new Allotmentโ€‹ OMG...part 3' thread as we've gone over 1000 posts.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Been to the plot each evening to plant stuff out. It's been great weather.  Caught a bit of Chelsea.


Put GH glass in 2nd one and just need to measure up for the roof and a couple of side panels 


Great to see the plot filling up with flowers and veg๐Ÿ˜€

GWRS, the hotel is quite a distance from the centre, so haven't booked in at the theatre, maybe next time, it's certainly worth a second trip. 


Only sowed courgettes, cues and squash before coming away so they won't be ready to plant out till June.


Have a nice day everyone๐Ÿ˜€

My asparagus grew, haven't picked any though as this is the first yr.


I'm in Stratford upon Avon for the weekend. Just been to Mary Arden's Tudor Farm. Must say you guys our plots are better weeded than their veg beds ๐Ÿ˜‹

Gg, Garden News recently rated Gtech ST20 Cordless trimmer as best lightweight.


Scroggin, sweetpea are looking good, mine have a long way to go before flowering.


We've had a couple of days of welcomed rain.


Sweetcorn and mini pop have germinated in GH. Both GH's are on the plot.

Finally got my broadband sorted. Sky sent me a new box, so back online.


Everyone seems to have been busy.  Finally got the 2nd GH up, it just needs glass fitting.  I've been busy planting out. Lots of peas and broad beans. Sowed in the ground for the first time too, mooli and carrots.

Hoping to go to the plot later to plant out more peas, broad beans and various flowers. 


Finally got the 2nd GH up and secured to base. It just needs the glass fitting.

Glad the pumpkin seeds have come up, I have some seeds bought in France, lots more seeds in the packet than British bought seeds. Seeds are sold by weight in France.


Broad beans had frost damage but I just trimmed off the blackened leaves, hopefully they've survived.


Going to the plot over the weekend and also plan to sow squash, courgettes and Pumpkin .


Happy growing everyone ๐Ÿ˜€

Everyone seems to have been busy, I'm having trouble with WiFi at home, so not  posted for a while.


I'd started to plant stuff out as there's no room in GH. Pea's, lettuce, Pak Choi and beans, we had some snow last night though...๐Ÿ˜Ÿ. 


I have further sowings so if stuff has been lost due to frost there are more plants in reserve.
