Allotment Adventures: Getting to Work

I have a confession, I’m finding all the time alone on the allotment a little difficult, I miss my trusty sidekick!

So I haven’t done as much as I planned, but I have done some things, the potatoes are in and the beetroot has been sown.

I’ve taken a decision not to fill up one of the squash beds and use the compost for other parts of the plot. Like the rose garden. Next month, I’ll see if I can still order some compost from somewhere else but I’m trying to chill a little bit.

The gooseberries are starting to blossom and the autumn raspberries are recovering from last week’s frosty mornings.

Ice on the pond in March!

It’s all in hand!

    Keep calm and carry on. I have made myself a rose garden. Hoping it will bloom this year, about 40 cuttings

      I am carrying on, but it doesn’t hurt to name a problem! 40 cuttings sounds much more planned and ambitious than my effort, I just relocated some of the roses around the plot so I could see them. I have no idea what they are, so it’ll be interesting…

    I pruned the roses in my front garden to paint a fence. So the cuttings went to the plot. You are correct no harm in naming a problem.

  3. I’ve just discovered your blog and already I share your pain, I’ll look forward to following your musings.
