Greetings from the Allotment 2017

The Growing season is well on it's way and with these March sunny spells of late, I've been busy down the new plot. Here's a March update on what's been going on...

Summer slam hat

Rhubarb, should be ready end of March. The leaves are poisonous going by the guide books  

Planning where to put the Beer hops form the old plot

Rosemary 

Plenty of worms in the soil 

Allotment land

Empty plastic bottles, always useful so as not to poke your eye out 

Compost bins with allotment toot: I've gone for a 2 tier compost version. I'll add a third if and when, all depends on the toot escalator

Chitting Charlotte potatoes. These were a big success last year, so fingers crossed for this year

My allotment tip. Cover it up until needed, this will save you having to worry about it

Raspberry canes rescued from the last plot 

Elephant garlic 

Chard, living in an old Moet bucket. I've yet to work out where to put these

Gin O'clock. Damson tree with Walthamstow's Town hall clock. She chimes every hour which is pretty handy
