Allotment Adventures: More relaxed than I probably should be

Everything is looking good but I also feel like everything is behind and I’m not too worried about it.

Over the bank holiday Ma and I will sort out compost and wood and I’m going to sow the squashes direct in the first week of June which is about the same time as I’ll put the tomatoes out. Yes, it’s late but we’re adapting to conditions!

This week, we weeded, we topped up the potato pots, we made another plan for the top half, with the hope being that by next spring we’ll be done with structure, although I’m determined that by the time I’m 60 there will be a greenhouse/polytunnel of some description!

The rhubarb is doing well, we picked over 3 kilos without making that much of a dent in the size of it.

The peonies flowered.


The magpies visited.


And there are bluebells, so I’m happy with how we’re going given the circumstances.
