Andy’s Allotment Easter 2012 Update

I’ve been preparing the ground on the allotment, which measures 20m x 5m. Breaking the soil, weeding and removing stones and tree roots.

(it burns off those Easter Eggs!)

Ready for me to plant, potatoes, white and red onions, shallots, garlic, carrots, beetroot, horse radish, asparagus, raspberries,  strawberries, goji berries, rhubarb - just a few things to get me started.

Here are some photographs, of my progress so far…

In the super, summer week in March, the allotment looked like this! But I was a little busy, to prepare the ground.

April showers, we did not have heavy snow as forecast, just missed out, bit it left the allotments very wet!

A funny picture, this is Plot 2, it shows how wet the allotments have been..
