The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Allotment 21

Below are Maris Peer potatoes chitting away - it was a lovely sunny Saturday today and these were planted out in the allotment.

All the potatoes and onions have now been planted plus a few rows of seeds - Beetroot Parsnips and Spring Onions

A few days ago we planted Courgette seed out in the open - I misread the instructions on the packet and I think we have planted too early. Perhaps the weather will be kind and they will survive.

The problems with running water seem to have passed and the plot is now dry - tomorrow will be a busy day netting fruit bushes - signs of fruit on the Gooseberries so it is important they are covered PDQ especially as we have seen a little mouse moving about.
