Anyway I didn't think you'd want me to drone on forever so I took lots of pictures for you to look at instead!!
|One half of my allotment.|
So this is the first half...nicely weeded and raked. I have managed to plant out my onions here too...a row each of red and white.
|Second half of the allotment.|
This is the second half. The bricked area is awaiting the strawberries I have ordered and I have put in my potatoes now. Pentland Javelin for my earlies along with a few tubers each of Charlotte and Swift.
All the tubs have been sorted and the Greenhouse area tidied and weeded. I have also now removed all the manure to the manure heap and sorted out the cold frame and raised bed.
|The pond/wildlife area.|
My pond area is nicely getting wild with lots of wild flowers coming through and there is some frog-spawn present too. I am really happy with how this is growing and I will sprinkle some more seeds round here too to add to the collection of bugs that visit.
The rhubarb is coming on nicely and I will soon have to pick the stems before they get too stringy. As you can see I have plenty of manure in the background in storage for next year!!
|Shed and fruit bushes.|
|Weeds left to be dug out.|
And finally I have took a photo of the weeds I have yet to dig out...just to prove to all my readers that I don't always have a wonderfully tidy plot...after all nobody is perfect!
So that is what I have been up to over the last week. There is still plenty to be getting on with but I am really pleased with how things are progressing and I really think that as the years go on maintaining the allotment gets a little easier with the things I am putting into place.
I'm hoping to get those last weeds out this week and to get some more seeds sown in the greenhouse too.
Hope you've all had a great Easter and hope that the weather has been kind to you so that you have been able to enjoy your bank holiday weekend!!
Oh and have you noticed how all my photos aren't in a straight line?? I think I may like this new blogger after all!!
