No specific subject today just some photos and a quick write up on how the allotment is coming along.
Plenty of seedling waiting to be planted out. That will be this weekends job. It is raining at the moment which will do no end of good at the allotment. I expect the plants -and weeds- to go crazy over the next few days.
We were given three broad bean plants by a fellow plot holder so they went straight into the ground
I am not a great fan of broad beans but I never look a gift horse in the mouth and it is great to get to try things you don’t normally eat.
There was a blueberry bush on the plot when we took it over and there is plenty of fruit growing on it even though it is a small plant
I will add more fruit bushes in the future. I am also keen to add nuts to the plot.
We planted out a few of the larger turnip plants and scattered egg shell about to deter the slugs
We have plenty more turnips to go in the grown this weekend.
Most of the Runner Beans have been planted out.
We love runner beans and always try to grow a lot of them each year
We have planted an Apple tree on the allotment.
It already has small apples on it so I am hoping to add a few of our own apples to the cider later in the year. There is also a cherry tree behind the apple in this photo.
Can anyone guess what plant is in the next photo?
This is a radish from last year. Very pretty little plant.
We have also planted out on of the Globe Artichokes.
I am not sure what to do with them but they do look impressive when they are fully grown.
That’s it for now. I will post more at the weekend once we have put more plants in the ground.
