Allotment Adventures: Blossom

We were away last weekend so we really did just pop in to add to the compost bin and see how everything was faring. Which was very well. The plum tree has blossomed, the fritillaries are all out and the tulips are nearly there.

One of the blueberry plants has flowers on it, the gooseberries are about to blossom and the raspberries all look great too. Last weekend I’d added potash to the garlic and that really seemed to have perked it up, the broad beans which were not looking so great have perked up and sweet peas survived the week in the cloche!

I can’t shake the feeling that I’m behind, but I’m fairly confident that I’m right on track but because the plot is in pretty good shape, I’m just ready sooner. I have to remind myself not to compare my plot to anyone else’s plot, especially if they have a greenhouse or polytunnel!

It’s been a bit colder this week, but there is lot of work to do as we really begin to get into it, next week’s work list looks like this


·         Plant the rest of the potatoes

·         Sow peas

·         Sow beetroot

·         Plant up two new blueberry plants

·         Paint shed

·         Weed the edges of the plot


·         Sow basil

·         Sow calendula  

·         Sow tomatoes
