Sorry - its allotment time again!! I went down there yesterday and also this afternoon. I can tell you that my least favourite thing in the world right now is ... roots!! I am digging and digging. Yesterday I dug for an hour and a bit and all I did was this...
Today I went down and managed to get further with the bed and add manure to it...
You can see how poor the soil is. I also sewed some green manure seeds, raked them and watered them in.
They are in the bed closest to the camera. Hopefully after a few weeks they will grow and I can dig them into the bed to enrich the soil.
My next and quite pressing job is to plant the raspberry canes a fellow allotment holder gave me along the new bed at the back. I have started keeping a journal of my progress with details as to jobs done, jobs planned and plants planted. Hopefully that way I can keep track of everything.
I have downloaded the form to apply for permission to put a shed on. It will be along the fence behind the oil barrel that I use for burning. Then I won't have to lug everything up there each time I go!!
Still, I am pleased with the progress, especially when you think that this time last year it looked like this...!!
Onwards and upwards!!
