Right now I am a wondering why the blog has the word 'allotment' in the title. So this weekend I got in my first three hours work of the new season on site.
I planted half a dozen jerusalem artechoke
sowed my first row of parsnips
buried some broad beans
and even planted a row of spuds (Swift + Red Duke of York) A tinsy bit optimistic perhaps.
There - That feels better. At least when I'm clearing the rest of the site, and building those fences I never got round to I have something growing!
Then I dug two trenches where my runner beans are going to go and filled them with the leftovers from the brassica patch and compost and filled them in
Ouch - Thats probably enough for now.
