New allotment OMG...Part 2...

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 😋

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 😀

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...😟. 

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

I'm away this weekend so will try to go to plot tomorrow to check seedlings 

I don't seem to do well with carrots, parsnips or mooli. Was going to sow more broad beans and peas this week to have a succession crop.

It's worth considering.

Went to the plot yesterday to check on seedlings, those covered don't seem to dry out too quickly.

Chilli's arrived in post x6. Various sizes, a bit disappointed with condition but potted up and hopefully they will recover on sunny window sill.

Happy growing everyone.

That should free up some space.

The GH door has had to be left open overnight as I can't get to the plot before work and it has been heating up in there during the day.

The nights have been cold though, I may need to harden stuff off at home.
