productive allotment moment
We had a productive time today, purchased seed potatoes – international kidney which I’ll grow in spud growbags and king Edwards, I chose these two as I love jersey royals and mum used to grow king Edwards so thought id give them a go.
We also sowed in our greenhouse in cell trays 80+ onion seeds, sweet peas, a variety if different lettuces (as an experiment to see if I can have early lettuce).
We also managed to lightly fork over and weed 2 raised beds, the soil level in these are a lot higher than the other so draining quite well despite some of the other beds being very boggy and so far too wet to dig. One of these beds is our asparagus bed and i wanted it weeded to have a clear bed to move my friends asparagus off her plot now she has given it up into this bed.
As it started getting cold, we packed it in for the day, plus I’d used some muscles I’d forgotten I had, I want to ease myself into digging again after developing sofa legs from being too slovenly over winter and Christmas!
I hope to transplant the asparagus on monday. There is also a plum tree I’d like off my friends plot which I may look at digging up this week.
