Started off a pumpkin grow off at the allotment.


Great fun. Ordered 30 seeds to see if we can get a fun community project and then have a soup night to use all the pumpkins….. So far response has been great.

Posted in Allotment Group (Witney) we are going for April Fools day planting.



So immediately the sun shines and I start getting excited about growing things.

Today’s order…. (Keep me away from those seed catalogues)

Sarpo Mira potatoes (second earlies) while my Red Duke of York earlier are chitting.

Ordered Nemaslug for a tenner to see if it helps keep those slugs down naturally and organically and supposed to be very effective.


Ordered 8x 1500 packets of Poached Egg Plants as a free give away to all our allotment tenants to grow under beans to encourage combination planting.
