It’s a mixed bag at the plot this week, with so much rain over the past few days I’m leaving the main part of the plot well alone. The garlic and broad beans are in the raised beds where there is good drainage and are doing well. Derek took these photographs on Sunday
The shed is now finished, roof shingles on, ‘hedgehog’ in the guttering to keep it clear of leaves and a new far larger water butt. We can now start ‘discussing’ what will be kept where. I’m keen to get the greenhouse as empty as possible and cleaned so we can start sowing. Next week if there’s a dry day, onions and shallots are first on the list.
Preparation of a bean row is also on the horizon, Bob was digging his last week so it must be the right time. We need to make a full planting plan for the year first to decide where to position it. This is when I long for a second plot to fit everything in, there’s already a list of thoughts and ideas stretching to two pages long.
I hope everyone is enjoying the break and managing to stay dry.
