Thursday 12th May 2016 – The rain has gone, now it’s time for Brassicas!

After 2 days of constant rain, it’s wonderful to see the sun again. Apparently we had half a months worth of rain in the last 2 days. Now I don’t mine rain (I prefer the sun), but not all at once. So with the sun shining again I put on my wellies and went back down my allotment. The plants had clearly loved the rain, as the Asparagus had got all excited and I had to harvest a load more spears. The Carrot seedlings are now growing really well, and have got so much larger since I last saw them a few days ago.

Carrots seedlings are doing well. I'm keeping my eye on that slug to the right of the picture.

Unfortunately the weeds liked the rain as well, so I’ve now got lots of weeding to do as well as all the rest of the stuff. I managed to dig over another couple of beds which was great. The rain has made the soil very easy to dig which is brilliant. I think I ended up with 3 barrow loads of green waste which shows that I had a great morning.

That's another couple of beds done. So nearly a quarter of my area is done, just the other three quarters to go.

After lunch I went into my greenhouse to pot up some more of my brassicas. I’ve got loads more to do, so it’s going to take me a fair amount of time I potted up 18 Sprouting Broccoli “Red Arrow”, which I also grew last year and they did really well. Hopefully I’ll had the same results this year, or maybe even better. But I still have loads of other varieties to do, but I’ll let you know as and when I get round to them. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I’d have got them all potted up into 3 inch pots.
