New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 13/06/2016 at 20:08

GWRS. Now that is hot...


I'm thinking of entering the veg section at The Great Eccleston Show. Haven't done anything like that before and me thinks it could be a challenge. It's not till 6/17-Jul....I've peas, onions, rubard, gooseberries and some other stuff which might be good to go.


Do you think I could enter some chucney made 2 years ago...

Carrot Issues

I can't grow them either, sorry not very helpful...your pic made me LOL though......mine usually fork, and that's after ensuring there's no big stones in the bed...the best I've achieved was growing them in a deep pot and picking as mini veg...

Anyone else use freecycle/trash nothing?

I've tried to give things away on Freestyle but it would have cost me to give!...


Offered a shed and said it would need collecting..all the responses asked me to deliver, same with a flat screen TV...I gave up.......I now have a car boot and if stuff isn't sold by lunch time, throw things in for free if people show an interest in an item...

GWRS, enjoy your jollies. You'll no doubt come back to a lush plot with all the veg romping away......

Beetroot

Posted: 08/06/2016 at 23:08

I'm starting more stuff in modules this year. It's a learning curve put means there's stuff to plant out when other vegs are harvested.


Beetroot me thinks is an under rated veg, most have only eaten it pickled. I tend to steam it and make a cheese sauce but will now try roasting or eat with a salad.

What is your weather like?

Hot and dry here in the NW, never thought the ground would ever dry out after the floods in the winter.

Fences and covenants...

Posted: 08/06/2016 at 22:10

Thing is I didn't know. I did put up a trellis in front of the high fence and replanted that side of the garden with stuff which liked the conditions. There is a gap behind and the trellis can easily be taken down. 


Think that will be the answer to their Q. 

Fences and covenants...

Posted: 07/06/2016 at 22:50

I don't want to start a fight with the neighbour, I would be happy just to put it all behind me. 


The issue has been raised by the purchaser. They are asking if any of the covenants have been broken, unknowingly that one has...

Is there anything I can do now?


I only discovered the covenant because I'm selling my property. Am I in the wrong for allowing him to put it up. I did complain to the council at the time and they supported him. I may still have the e-mails.
