I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the start of the growing season, at last it’s here. I have spent many hours in my greenhouse nurturing seeds and finally the moment has arrived . Planting time, hooray. I always enjoy following closely other gardening/allotment bloggers, it’s amazing how many varieties of vegetables, salad and fruit people grow, well done to all of you. Even a few carefully placed flowers look amazing on a plot.
My progress this year is a little slow but with the help of my wonderful hubby and son things are getting done. So far we have planted our early potatoes, Charlotte and International kidney. Main crop, our favourite Desiree also Pentland crown, we have never grown this variety before, so fingers crossed. We have also just transplanted our peas into their final growing place. Cabbages and cauliflowers have also been planted. Onions and shallots got off to a flying start but a severe frost last week put the poor things into shock!
We have also planted a row of broad beans and to fill a space at the front of the plot we have chosen a blueberry and a gooseberry bush. I could resist these during a recent visit to Wilko. So good look to everyone, lets hope the sun shines and a little rain falls. Personally I’m really looking forward to another year on the allotment.
