After lunch last Sunday I gave the shed, pallet patio and compost bin a coat of wood preserver Woodland Green.
I’ve since plotted every morning Monday through to yesterday forking, hoeing, planting, sowing and weeding. This is what the plot looked like on Thursday morning –
The light coloured area on the right of the bottom area is where the raspberries grow, and which now all have new growth appearing. To the left of these are the onions some of which have just appeared. The rest of the area is for growing vegetables including beetroot, carrots, cucumbers and lettuce.
The middle area is all potatoes, which have now all been planted, and over on the right in front of the compost bin is the blackberry bush.
In the top left hand area I’ve sown some broad beans, with more to follow. In a month or so I’ll be sowing French climbing and runner beans, in a double row down along the left hand edge, along with sweetcorn and tomatoes. The rhubarb is in the top right hand corner with the strawberries in a double row on the right next to the middle path.
The flower area is over on the top right, above the middle group of daffodils, which I shall cover in more detail in forthcoming posts.
Sadly the crocuses have finished and the daffodils just starting to go over but the plum tree is now blossoming. Last year saw a few marble sized fruit for the first time and I’m hoping that it’ll do better this year.
Yesterday morning it was a sunny and warm so there were plenty of plot neighbours around. Unfortunately some were busy with bonfires, lawn mowers, rotovators and strimmers so I didn’t stay too long. Thankfully the forecast is looking good so I’ll be there tomorrow morning hopefully with just the birds for company.
Have a good week!
