The rain has ceased for a short while.......
so I have taken the chance to wander down to the allotment for a few hours...things need planting, weeds need to be hoed and got rid of, seeds need to be sorted, etc., etc., so 'get on with it!!' I say to myself...
Well, the weeds had made a comeback, but nothing me and my push hoe couldn't handle!!
After a good few rows of 'hoeing', (I must admit I did have a bit of help, my youngest did a lot of hoeing!) we managed to clear quite a space!
The beetroot 'plugs' I planted last week, and covered with plastic water bottles, are doing quite well, even though I say so myself!
As you can see (above)
These are the remainder of the onion sets that have been planted...
And these are the first sightings of the 'early' new potatoes!! At least they haven't died yet!!
And as always, I must have cup tea and a quick write up of what I have planted...... And below is one last look at my small allotment as it appears now ( as before, sadly the 'greenhouse' is not mine :( !), but the weeds are!!!
Oh, and this is one of the things I have been trying to protect my small crop from..... one HUGE pigeon!!!
Well, I'll report back next week for anyone who is interested, but if you do have any hints or tips for an allotment, please, please let me know!! All information will be very much appreciated!!
