Friday 17th April 2015 – A short afternoon.

I was busy this morning running various errands, so the allotment had to wait until this afternoon for me to visit. I was only able to spend a little under 2 hours today on my plot, but to be honest that was enough as I’ve been working very hard this week. Next week I’ve got work and various other things, so won’t be able to get up as often as I’d like, but still should manage about 6 or 7 hours next week, depending on what the weather brings. I’ll keep you informed of my progress and what I’ve been getting up to. But back to today. The weather was much cooler and there was a rather strong easterly wind, which meant that it was a little on the chilly side. When the wind eased it got very warm, so it was a day of having your jumper constantly on and off. I managed to dig over 2 more decent sized beds and start another large one, until I’d had enough and am not how having a lovely cup of tea. Not had one since this morning. The beds are coming on very nicely so I thought I’d show you.

Plot 1

Still lots of work to do on plot 1. Parsnips, Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Radish, Spring Onions and Beetroot are all in. As well as various other perennials like Rhubarb, Strawberries and Chard.

Plot 2

Again still more to do here. But Potatoes and Asparagus are growing well. Up the end (which you can’t see) I’ve got Horseradish just starting again and Globe Artichokes looking wonderful. Well that’s it for this week. Have a great weekend what ever you’re doing. I’m in Somerset on Saturday visiting 4 different bell towers to ring their bells, so that should be fun.

    I always enjoy blogs and would like to thank you for sharing your activities in such an enjoyable way. Well done you. Your plots look good 🙂 Have you tried a flash of tea? Enjoy your bell ringing.

    • If I’m going to stay down on my allotment for several hours I take down a flask of soup, some other lunch snacks and a thermal mug of tea, along with a bottle of water just incase. I’m well prepared for a wonderful time.
