New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 20/06/2017 at 23:18

Gg  Think I'll suggest an allotment comp' to our association.


I've tried to go to the plot in the evening, mainly to water but doing some weeding, hoeing and planting keeps mother nature at bay. A lot of other plot holder seem to be doing the same thing.


Chillies and peppers are doing well, toms aren't the best I've grown, think they got to leggy before planting out.

Gf. What an incentive for plot holders having a 'best allotment comp'.

Fruit or vegetable...

Is a chilli a fruit or vegetable....l'm thinking of entering a local show and one section is any other veg not mentioned in their list.


Chillies aren't on their list and I"ve  some plants with chillies on. Hungarian black are nearly 2inch long.

They've possibly only.been watered twice since planting out and I never water before 7pm, the are grown to cut on an allotment and I can't  get there much before then during the week.

Harvested anything yet?

Globe artichokes looking good too.

Had a nice day at Chatsworth Flower show on Sunday. Forecast rain at 4pm so we looked round the house and as we left the rain had stopped. 


Would recommend a visit, there wasn't enough time to see everything. I left my phone, they were ever so good and posted it same day😁

The strong winds this week blew over my onions, shallots and garlic look ok though. 


Planted out sweet corn last weekend which has taken a bit of a battering. Minipop going out this weekend.


Got loads of gooseberries in back garden but those on the plot are a little late.


I've been having problems getting on line, hopefully got it sorted out now. 

Traffic chaos - Chatsworth!!

Scroggin your cues are doing well, mine have only just germinated​. Courgettes and squash have also just germinated​,, no sign of Pumpkin's yet. 


Anyone else running out of room to plant out? What I've still to plant out takes up loads of ground...sweetcorn, mini pop, courgettes etc...


Didn't get chance to start new thread over weekend.


The leaves on some of my spud plants are beginning to curl up!
