And so it begins….seed potatoes chitting (Charlotte & Desiree) and the onion sets (centurion, an improved version of Sturon) are now in their modules.

Catching up with the allotment.

It seems ages since my last posting and truth be told I have not been paying as much attention to the allotment this year as I would normally. Couple of factors my new garden at the bungalow and the extreme weather. I really don’t like working in the heat we have been experiencing. However, I have started doing an early morning visit, before the day heats up and that has helped enormously.

the plot is still looking remarkably green and although I half expected a burnt waste-land when we came back from our holiday (lovely thanks for asking. Icelandic weather suits me).

I wasn’t going to bother with courgettes this year but I was given a couple of plants and they are doing well – this one in particular looks to have a few flowers coming. They are not guaranteed to become a courgette obviously – but promising. My parsnips are looking good as well after I thinned them out a little.

My onions are ready to pick and despite them bolting they look reasonably sound. Probably make chutney rather than attempt to store them this year. The sweetcorn is progressing well – flowers and silks starting to appear!

This morning’s haul! Lovely! The blackberry bush yielded up 600g of fruit, not bad considering I didn’t net the bush against birds. Perhaps they were too full after eating ALL my jostaberries!

We let one of our onions flower last year. A huge success with the bees! And we don’t mind harvesting a bit of extra oniongreens now and then.
