Allotment Adventures: Plant Sparta

It’s that time of the year when I plant all the things out and then worry. After last week’s great planting out, there where some plants that didn’t cope. I’m not sure about some of the cukes, two of the squash definitely aren’t going to make it but much to my surprise all of the summer squash seem to be ok and the celery is really happy!It was hot on Saturday and I had a funny turn with my breathing. So we watered, picked, pulled up some weeds and put a net over the blueberries.We’re at that point where all we have to do is water, maintain and wait for the food.

However, there was one ripe raspberry (on the autumn raspberries) that Ma ate, and there were broad beans, baby leaf salad, lemon verbena and mint to pick and we’re about a month away from it all happening. Meanwhile there are many beds to water, I did ten trips and that was about half the plot…There are more flowers this week, the verbena boneriesis, the lavender, chives and the peas are all flowering along with the ever present california poppies.
