Time to Get On

We had a great weekend, particularly today - 5 hours on the site in the lovely warm sunshine. 
As soon as we arrived on site Tanya offered us a box of red onion sets. We were resigned to not growing any this year because Thompson & Morgan couldn't deliver our Santero sets. So that was much appreciated - I popped 14 in Plot 8 and the rest of the box went up to the allotment spares table in the communal area on site. Finally, some planting!
Plot 8 is looking loved again, with newly barked paths and dug beds and a weed-suppressed area for the seed house.
The raspberries are covered in fresh green leaves and buds. 
Jamie cleared last year's rotten potato patch and tidied the edges and I mixed some lime and a bit of fertiliser into the bed for the broad beans next week. So, we actually feel like we're getting somewhere now!

  1. We stopped buying onions, shallots and garlic online as they never seem to be delivered as soon as we want them. Now it's a visit to a local garden centre or two.
