It’s getting lonely at the allotment, for this year, my first year of having my own plot, I am growing over winter. And I am the only one that is.
Plus I have the greenhouse to assemble.
The plant suppliers have unfortunately let me down with the autumn asparagus, that will not be arriving until march now. But one has planted the broad beans, peas, winter lettuce, over wintering kale, cabbage and broccoli, I think.
For some reason this year has had a bunch of labels disappear, and my papers with notes on have been destroyed in the move around. However, with all the rearranging that has taken place this year, any veg grown is just classed as a bonus.
Last years leaf mould has yet to be moved into its next container, to make room for this years leaves. Some more branch shredding, moving water buts to their final places, guttering and of course the greenhouse to be assembled, glazed and benches/shelving to be built inside it.
The plot started looking like a building site and it looks like it may see the latter parts of the year looking like one as well.
But it should be finished for the start of the next season, and I will be in front with the crops.
Well that’s the plan.
