Nothing like a little light weeding after work.  The fresh air makes all the difference!  Got rid of a few random potatoes from last year - shame some seemed to be blue but they will ruin the garlic and you  shouldn’t grow potatoes in the same place two years running.  It’s so lovely down there.

Another dry day so we popped down the allotment after work. The best surprise was the elves had been down today and re dug and fertilised the back cage, planted spinach, chard and baby salad! They’d also tidied up round the side of the fruit cage. Thank you elves! We pootled around, took the flowers off the rhubarb, we were reliably informed if we leave them the rhubarb will be rubbish and we did a bit of watering. Soooo relaxing!

Time to start planting some of the seeds. Some in the mini greenhouse and some for the windowsills inside. So we got in the following:

Tomatoes; black cherry, yellow pear cherry and Bulgarian steak (a kind gift).

Beans; yellow bush, black bush, green bush, runners

Marigolds for around the tomatoes

Squash; butternut, yellow courgette, round courgette

Celery

Peppers; cayenne, sweet

Cucumber

Think that is everything we did. They were a mixture of bought and saved from last year so it will be interesting to see how and if they all work! We’ll keep you updated.
