Allotment Adventures: Looking like a garden

This time last year, I had almost everything planted, sow and growing. This year has been very different, I went into last weekend with garlic, onions, shallots, carrots, beetroot, pea, broad beans, salad, parsnips, salsify, and potatoes in the ground and growing. The fruit is all in various stages of growth as well, I think we’ll be fine for rhubarb, blueberries and raspberries, we’ll see how the plums do and hopefully get one or two gooseberries, strawberries and boysenberries.

We are fighting a battle with the weeds but after this weekend feel like we are almost there in terms of planting. We got tomatoes and sweet potatoes in and sowed summer squash, french beans, cucumbers, basil, dill and the first bed of winter squash.

It feels like the hard work is paying off.
