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!
Start of preparing the gound…
Ploughed the day before…
finally tilled….I’m waiting for the ground to dry out before creating my trenches for potatoes and asparagus.
A funny picture, this is Plot 2, it shows how wet the allotments have been..
Plot 2 next to my allotment! see how wet it is!
