Haven’t had too much time to do stuff at the allotment other than tidy up a bit around the edges. Most things in the ground are coming to an end and I will begin chopping and dropping or composting stuff very soon.
The pond is beginning to look a little more established with lots of little creatures showing up. It has been very dry throughout September so the surrounds to the pond still looks a little barren but I think this will change rather quickly with all the rain we are now having.
I have added a new bed on the other side of the pond. This area has not been used up till now and when I get it filled it will almost double my growing area. We have run out of horse manure at the allotment so I will have to try and source some from elsewhere. I will have to find a new place for the compost bin, I might see if I can get away with putting it outside of the fence.
My onions are coming on really well. And I will plant some of them out very soon.
I think I will plant some of them in the new bed I have built in the poly tunnel. I decided to build a bed in the poly tunnel insted of growing things mainly in containers in there because they will require watering less frequently.
Here is the new poly tunnel bed before being filled with soil. It is now filled with manure but I need to get some nice compost to top dress it before planting.
The guys from the allotment association have built a massive bug hotel to try to attract more diversity to the allotmentd as a whole. They asked if I could come up with a sign for it and this is what we came up with.
That’s it for now
