Spring feels like it’s here.
Down on my plot I have been planting more Seed Potatoes (transferred from the greenhouse at home onto the Plot) as well as the final lot of Red Onions into a Raised Bed:
As I have quite a few seed potatoes, I have had to have another Raised Bed with Potatoes as I don’t have enough room in the original Raised Bed. This one if pretty full and will probably need another additional one.
And Electric Red Onions are ready to be transferred onto the plot after sitting in trays of compost and growing well.
I have struggled to have Onions on my plot (which may be due to the heavy clay soil or the local wildlife which likes to eat them before they’re fully grown) so we shall see what happen this crop. Indeed, I have covered it over with a light sheet to prevent the pigeons picking them up and pulling them out.
And still harvesting my Purple Sprouting Broccoli although some of the buds look worse for wear with some black fly affecting some of the bunches. Whilst they still remain edible, after cooking them, it is strange that they lose their distinctive purple colour and some stems remain quite hard!
And just around the corner from the Allotment site, we have a new supply store (with a tea room) which has opened in the former site of as previous Garden Centre. It has a good tea room (with GLUTEN FREE cakes) and a good wide selection of seeds and plants.
