Allotment Update No.12
Follow the allotment series here.
This weekend we’ve dug another three beds… and started planting! Well, a few cabbage seeds went in on the 19th Feb and today we added a third of a bed of parsnips. The rest really need to wait until the risk of frost has passed.
Our allotment neighbour very kindly gave us a few rhubarb crowns today. Very much appreciated, they went straight into a well manured bed we had previously earmarked for courgettes.
We’ve also been collecting wood. Both from skips and Freecycle. Last weekend we got it down to the allotment to make edges for the beds. The earliest beds were dug last summer and gradually the grass has been reclaiming them, one was around six inches narrower! These edges should hold the grass at bay.
