The best advice we have ever been given when it comes to allotments is ‘little and often’, that is to say if you can get a job done here and there on a regular basis then progress WILL be made. The last month has been all about that given the rain and this weekend was no exception.
Potting on the sweetcorn….
….. and some very neglected curly kale and celery that we bought a month ago put in the cold frame and promptly forgot about.
While I did that Derek constructed the frame for the climbing beans and laid a new path on the main bed to make it easier to water once it is fully planted.
We also managed to finally start planting the new herb bed (you can see it in the above picture, but more to follow), mow the grass paths and weed the raised beds, then finally beaten by the rain took a trip over to Ayletts to pick up some annuals to plant around the gooseberry bushes which I hope to get planted today. Rain allowing of course.
