Every time we go out to the allotment we always plan to do more than we actually manage to accomplish. We went at the weekend with plans to sheet between the raised beds and lay a layer of wood chips, weed and plant the ever growing collection of plants that we have gathered on our garden table and some more onion sets.
The reality was that we managed to weed and level our large planting areas, plant the onion sets and our courgettes, pumpkins and butternut squash plants have finally gone in. We still have our broccoli, purple sprouts, purple carrots leeks and beans to go in.
We are experimenting with where plant our tomatoes and cucumbers. We have made sure that the plants are well weathered and have planted the tomatoes in our first large bed. Normally we plant them in grow bags on our decking so decided this year as we had the allotment that we would try to grow them there. We are debating where to plant the cucumbers. If anyone has managed to get them to grow out doors we'd love to know how you did it.
Here's hoping we don't get flooded again this week.
