Our Allotment garden is only a couple of minutes walk from where we live. To give you the size of this plot of land it is approximately 165 ft in length by 45 ft wide…
The first crops to be planted will be Shallots, Onions, Beetroot, Early Potatoes, Carrots and Peas.. I have already sown in pots in the greenhouse ~ Sweetcorn, Runner Beans, Cabbage, Brussels, Cauliflower and Brocoli Kale, Squash, among others..
The only fertilizer we are using is Manure and very sparingly some Chicken Fertilizer and Grow-more … We do not use any Herbicides or pesticides preferring to plant flowers such as marigolds and others which attract not only the bees but also put off the aphids.
Below is an update in Picture format of what has been planted in the ground so far and how things are growing in May 2015.
I hope you enjoyed the first update in my new blog specially set up for the Allotment updates.
