Plot 26a Hailey Road Allotments 2018.

The planned plot adding lots of fruit. 20 raspberry canes went in at the weekend. Added lovely horse manure on the top. Thanks goes to Geoff, my allotment Buddie, who helped me dig up the canes from someone’s garden and planted in my allotment.

Still got 2 honey bear fruit bushes to go in. And 2 blackcurrant bushes. (proud of myself as they are my cuttings growing well)

Being excited about sowing seeds. Tomatoes next weekend.

Let the growing season begin….


Long long ago

I started this blog….. I then found it a choreย  to do my allotment as I’m sure some do….. But I haven’t given up, which I did think about several times.

I have had 2 hand operations in the last 4 months, the last one just over 7 weeks ago.

And its still tender but today I went up to my plot and remembered why I have an allotment.

Meet up with plot holder friends at our community shed and shared coffee, horse poo and a chat. We’ll earned after shuffling wheel barrows full of horse poo.

The shed in the snow.

Managed to replan the big plot I have to make permenant fruit beds and planted established raspberry canes today.๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‡

Also managed to clock up over 7000 steps on the fit bit. So…… Now what seeds shall I start to sew in my greenhouse?
