Need a reminder of the neglected field that was once my allotment??
|This is a very unkempt Legume bed.|
Due to circumstances this year I didn't
even get it harvested, Oh and say 'Hi' to
Juliette in the background who by trying to
move out of the shot actually put herself in
the centre of it!! lol.
|The strawberry bed is a complete mess and also needs|
re-locating, I'm not sure if it is too late now this year.
Advice on the timing would be welcome.
|Here is the first part I tackled, all the new|
potatoes are out of the ground and they
were a truly bumper crop this year. In their
place i have the garlic and onions to be planted.
So as you can see I have made a bit of a start here...the potatoes came out the weeknd before last and then the ground was dug over and weeded in preparation for the roots on Sunday. However that's not all I have done this week....what I now have is beginning to really resemble my allotment again and is making me feel a lot better about the weather changing so quickly.
|So you can see to the back here that I have weeded and|
winter dug the roots bed where the veggies have
been harvested. I will be putting some broad beans
in here and pulling the beetroot soon too,
|Here is the same piece of land as in the first|
photo but from a different angle. As you can
see all the weeds have been pulled and it has
been dug over ready for winter. Hard work all
round but very satisfying!!
|The brassica bed still needs a tidy up |
and I need to get the sweetcorn pulled up!
And then of course there are still the old potatoes to be dug and the strawberries I mentioned earlier to be sorted. Oh and the raspberry canes need cutting back, the pond area sorting out...and...and...and.
Okay I'm stopping there before I burst the bubble I am in about how much I have got done this week. I think I have tackled the hardest areas first though so hopefully (fingers crossed) everything from here on out will be childs play!!
