Down on my Plot, it’s the last lot of First Earlies to be planted as well as some Main Crop Potatoes as I know several of my fellow Allotmenteers have already planted in their potatoes. Maybe I’m behind schedule already but it is traditional (or an Old Wives tale) to plant them at Easter time, so I’m not that far behind!
The short bamboo canes indicate a seed potato and these shall be removed once they sprout through the soil;
Also whilst on my Plot, I dug over the former Brassica Bed and covered it with some manure (to feed the soil) in preparation for more Main Crop Potatoes!
And back in the little Greenhouse at home, I decided to review my sown seeds and see whats growing well:
Fennel, Cosmos & Yellow Courgettes
And more vegetables largely in the paper pots which I love to use. These mean that transplanting them (when they’re ready) is quick, easy and doesn’t disturb the roots.
With some flowers as well as Vegetables:
So now hardening off some of the peas, sweet peas and preparing the Main Crop potatoes to be moved over to the plot.
