|All my brassicas in one basket|
Of course there was lots of preparation to do.
First rule of brassicas - never plant out until you've got pigeon protection. So up went the chicken wire and out comes the plastic netting (and repair kit) . I managed to salvage an old one.
Second rule: Ground preparation is vital. and plenty of water. Boy is that ground dry and dusty!
|Wet and dry|
Fourth rule: slug pellets (the more expensive "organic approved" ones). Otherwise you can forget it.
OK I just made up those rules but they're the ones I follow.
The yellow flowers (can you guess?) They're parsnip flowers from the one plant I've left to go to seed. I'm wondering now if it was such a good idea now it's in my brassica patch. Oh well.
After that it only rained! (a little) Woopee.
Ali. I have my nursery beds in my wee garden at home and grow plants on 3 or 4 miles across town at my allotment!
Hi Lorraine, Ruth (hope your Dad is supplying you with veg from his plot) and everyone who has joined me in my allotment blog adventure. It's great to see you, and get your interesting and encouraging comments.
